This book, written by Bruce L. Berg, repeats some of the material discussed in The Craft of Political Research, but, unlike the latter, its focus group is broader. While W. Phillips Shively’s book is applicable to social sciences other than political science, Mr. Berg targeted a larger group – that of all social scientists.
Its title completely explains what you will find there – qualitative research methods for the social sciences. Every chapter is about a certain research method, and it also includes exercises (a “Trying It Out” part). Qualitative Research Methods for the Social Sciences, together with The Craft of Political Research, are among the very few books from my undergraduate studies that I decided not to sell. Thus instead of searching for an abundance of articles on the internet on how to conduct a certain research on a specific social science, I already have these books at my disposal that will have answers to such questions.
