ISBN: 978-1509517411

An invaluable resource to demystify the research process for advanced undergraduate and graduate students. It is organised around four major steps in social research - focusing, framing, selecting and distilling - placing particular emphasis on the formulation of research questions and the choice of appropriate logics of inquiry to answer them. It sets out the requirements for research designs and proposals and provides four sample research designs on environmental issues. This edition includes material dedicated to social research in a digital, networked age.
