Editorial Reviews

"Better than ever in this revised new edition, Ways of Knowing is a remarkably well-structured and even-handed introduction to practically all that students need to learn about broad methodological issues. The authors survey and assess such a tremendous range of literature so clearly that it will be useful to everyone from undergraduates to those training for PhDs." - Craig Parsons, University of Oregon.
