Product Description Featuring a conversational, engaging, and student-friendly writing style, The Process of Social Research, Second Edition, introduces students to the fundamentals of research. It places a unique emphasis on process with flowcharts in every chapter that provide step-by-step guides for conducting social research and evaluating the research of others. Authors Jeffrey C. Dixon, Royce A. Singleton, Jr., and Bruce C. Straits use relatable, everyday examples and carefully selected research examples to make the book accessible to undergraduates. Comprehensive and up-to-date without attempting to be encyclopedic in its coverage, The Process of Social Research provides a balance between qualitative and quantitative research, taking a more integrated approach to describing the relationship between theory and research. Review " The Process of Social Research is among the best textbooks for teaching students how to conduct research. The authors have done an excellent job of making the content both interesting and inviting to aspiring sociologists, and showing how the research process unfolds."--Ginny Garcia-Alexander, Portland State University "The authors have done a wonderful job laying out a logical approach to research design. I love the balance and dialogue between quantitative and qualitative methods. I appreciate that it covers both approaches and explicitly encourages students to employ more than one method."--Virginia Adams O'Connell, Moravian College "What is unique about this text is that the authors bring in real, contemporary researchers. They do a great job of incorporating relevant research by quoting a wide variety of studies, using everyday, interesting examples."--Linda Bzhetaj, Oakland University About the Author Jeffrey C.
