"The SAGE Handbook of Applied Social Research Methods, Second Edition" provides students and researchers with the most comprehensive resource covering core methods, research designs, and data collection, management, and analysis issues. This thoroughly revised edition continues to place critical emphasis on finding the tools that best fit the research question given the constraints of deadlines, budget, and available staff. Each chapter offers key guidance on how to make intelligent and conscious tradeoffs so that one can refine and hone the research question as new knowledge is gained, unanticipated obstacles are encountered, or contextual shifts take place - all key elements in the iterative nature of applied research.Each chapter has been enhanced pedagogically to include more step-by-step procedures, specific, rich yet practical examples from various settings to illustrate the method, parameters to define when the method is most appropriate and when it is not appropriate, and greater use of visual aids (graphs, models, tip boxes) to provide teaching and learning tools. This book features twenty core chapters written by research experts that cover major methods and data analysis issues across the social and behavioral sciences, education, and management. It places an emphasis on applying research techniques, particularly in 'real-world' settings in which there are various data, money, time, and political constraints. It includes new chapters on mixed methods, qualitative comparative analysis, concept mapping, and internet data collection.It features a newly developed section that serves as a guide for students who are navigating through the book and attempting to translate the chapters into action. It also features a new Instructor's Resources CD, with relevant journal articles, test questions, and exercises to aid the instructor in developing appropriate course materials.

This book contains the stories of the citizen soldiers of an Army Reserve unit who were among the first wave of reservists mobilized after September 11. "Deployed" is not a chronicle of war, but a portrait of how a group of civilians came to be called to extraordinary service to their country and how they adapted to long deployments while coping with family relations, military duties, and civilian careers. While the shock, anger, and fear resulting from the events of 9/11 propelled many reservists to gladly accept or even volunteer for the initial call of duty, ultimately they were unprepared for the reality of being an integral component for fighting the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq."Deployed" challenges the prevailing stereotype of returning soldiers as war-damaged citizens. It draws upon the life stories of forty-six citizen soldiers of the 893rd Army Reserve MP and explores how and why they joined the Army Reserve, how they dealt with the seismic changes in their lives during and after their deployments, the evolution of their relationships inside and outside their military unit, and their perspectives on the U.S. Army.The book also uncovers five pathways that define why these citizens joined the reserves, showing how basic needs and cultural idioms combined to stimulate enlistments. "Deployed" features three distinctive clusters of citizen soldiers: adaptive reservists who adjust quickly to the huge changes in their lives abroad and at home; struggling reservists whose troubles are more a product of home-grown circumstances than experiences specific to serving in a war zone; and reservists who are dismissive of military life while they live it and are against the war even as they fight it.

Designed to help students learn how to think about research projects, this guide offers suggestions which cover four broad areas of social science: the creation of the "imagery" to guide research; methods of "sampling" to generate maximum variety in the data; the development of "concepts" to organize findings; and the use of "logical" methods to explore systematically the implications of what is found. The advice ranges from simple tricks such as changing an interview question from "Why?" to "How?" (as a way of getting people to talk without asking for a justification) to more technical tricks such as how to manipulate truth tables. Drawing from a variety of fields such as art history, anthropology, sociology, literature and philosophy, the author ranges from James Agee to Ludwig Wittgenstein, to find the common principles which lie behind good social science work, principles that apply to both quantitative and qualitative research.

Interviewing is an essential tool in qualitative research and this introduction to interviewing outlines both the theoretical underpinnings and the practical aspects of the process. After examining the role of the interview in the research process, Steinar Kvale considers some of the key philosophical issues relating to interviewing: the interview as conversation, hermeneutics, phenomenology, concerns about ethics as well as validity, and postmodernism. Having established this framework, the author then analyzes the seven stages of the interview process - from designing a study to writing it up.

In this introduction to understanding, researching and doing case studies in the social sciences, Hamel outlines several differing traditions of case study research including the Chicago School of Sociology, the anthropological case studies of Malinowski, and the French La Play school tradition. He shows how each developed, changed and has been practised over time. Suggestions for the practice of case studies are made for the novice reader and an additional feature is the extensive bibliography on case study methods in social science to allow for further exploration of the topic.
