Format: Paperback
"Quasi-Experimentation" carries on the work begun by Campbell and Stanley in "Experimental and Quasi-Experimental Designs for Research." Beginning with a discussion of the positivist origins of science and evaluation research, it details a range of quasi-experimental approaches suitable to "real world" research, together with statistical techniques applicable to each. The book includes a realistic assessment of the barriers to randomization in natural settings, including the observation that true randomization is rarely used unless there is a marked power differential between the researcher and the subjects. The book is thoughtful, well-written, and invaluable.

Format: Paperback
I grant that it's not the most up-to-date, transparent, visually stimulating, or artfully written book. Even so, it's very rewarding for a reader who's serious about expanding his/her toolkit and gaining a more professional grasp of challenging issues in research design--experimental, non experimental, or quasi-experimental. Material on threats to validity, especially, continues to be cited extremely widely. Their discussion of time series modelling is intriguing, and they offer a particularly thought-provoking section on the intricacies of analyzing gain scores and the choice of ANOVA vs. ANCOVA.

Format: Paperback
Although this book is from 1979, and would appear to be replaced by the recent book Shadish, Cook, and Campbell, _Experimental and Quasi-Experimental Designs_ (2002), it is actually not redundant with the newer book as it explains a number of issues clearly that are omitted in SCC.
