about

The revised second edition of this innovative textbook on methodology in social and political science focuses centrally on the debate between positivist and constructivist approaches. Lively and accessible, the book introduces a range of key issues which show how methodological pluralism can be combined with intellectual rigor.

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.
