Social Research An Evolving Process by Donald G. McTavish, Herman J. Loether

A shorter, less intimidating research methods text that discusses research not as a cut-and-dried set of procedures, but rather as an evolving inquiry process within real social settings. Social Research: An Evolving Process covers quantitative and qualitative approaches and issues related to the research process in a straightforward, easily understood format. It takes a unique sociological orientation to the research process by emphasizing the social aspects of serious research, the flaws that can result, and ways to detect and correct those flaws.
