Synopses & Reviews
A substantially revised and updated edition of an earlier volume in the series. Asher presents a number of techniques of causal modelling, beginning with the work of Simon and Blalock, and moving on to recursive and non-recursive path estimation. Special attention is given to a number of problems in the causal analysis of data, with illustrations from studies in political socialization and voting behaviour.
Retains complete coverage of the first edition, while amplifying key areas such as direct/indirect effects, standardized/unstandardized variables, multicollinie-arity, and nonrecursive modeling.
