Controversial Issues in Social Research Methods


Controversial Issues in Social Research Methods Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The purpose of this book is to review for the first time the many controversial issues of research methodology that have arisen in the social psychological literature. Key issues summarized include: - the arguments favoring role-playing as an alternative to research involving deception - the value of informed consent procedures - the role of laboratory vs. field research in theory development and application - the potential value and limitations of meta-analysis. In this way, the present work captures the excitement and constant growth of social research methodology. By using this book, researchers and students can assess the latest ideas and the classic thoughts concerning their varied research methodology options. This is no ordinary text, no how to guide, but an extensive, unbiased review of what social scientists have to say about the research methods they use. As such, it is intended to be an essential sourcebook for all social scientists and a critical volume for use in graduate-level seminars in the social sciences, especially social psychology.
