Publisher Comments:

The author is well known and respected in the field. The software and workbook take a step-by-step approach to show students how to perform sociological research using the same types of data and techniques used by professional researchers. The workbook includes clear and accessible explanations of basic research concepts and methods, challenging exercises, independent research projects, and data sets.

Book News Annotation:

Babbie (Chapman U.) is also author of a lengthier textbook on general methods, The Practice of Social Research, first published in 1975 and now in its 9th edition. The Basics of Social Research was written to provide a shorter textbook on the same subject, with a stronger emphasis on applied research. This second edition includes a chapter on research ethics, revisions of material on qualitative research, inclusion of new software programs for quantitative and qualitative research data analysis, and a greater integration of several computer resources within the text.
