Editorial Reviews

Review

"Although the book is aimed at graduate students and novice researchers, its content-especially the introduction-has value to all social science researchers, regardless of whether they pursue qualitative or quantitative research." (Peter Hernon 2007-07-16)

Very good book for research students who desire a solid foundation in the use of theory in their studies. This book is scholarly, yet the use of theory is presented in a very straightfoward and quite easy to understand manner. Those who have stuggled with the use of theory in the past will find this book to be very helpful.

After reading this book, the meaning and use of theory in my research clicked and now I totally get it. The authors provide an in-depth description of theory and its importance to the development of research. There are also chapters that discuss the use of a particular theory embedded in various studies with explanations of why the researchers used them. Outstanding resource and a must read for anyone beginning the road toward dissertation completion.
