    Book Description. This book presents a unified set of arguments about the nature of jurisprudence and its relation to the jurist’s role. It explores contemporary challenges that create a need for social scientific perspectives in jurisprudence, and it shows how sociological resources can and should be used in considering juristic issues. Appreciative Inquiry: Research for Change is the first book dedicated to exploring appreciative inquiry (AI) as an approach to change-focused research. More than ever, students and researchers seek to do more than report on what they see following a research study or project, but rather engage the research environment (participants, stakeholders) to promote change.

    Designing Social Inquiry Book Description: While heated arguments between practitioners of qualitative and quantitative research have begun to test the very integrity of the social sciences, Gary King, Robert Keohane, and Sidney Verba have produced a farsighted and timely book that promises to sharpen and strengthen a wide range of research. “This is an excellent addition to the literature of integrated methodology. The author has skillfully integrated diverse ways of thinking about mixed methods into a comprehensive and meaningful framework. By providing detailed examples, she makes it easy for both the students and the practitioners to understand the intricate details and complexities of doing mixed methods research.4/5(1).

      * This book is ideal for students in education, sociology, social psychology, and nonprofit who want to expand their ability to mix qualitative and quantitative research methods. * This is the newest, freshest take on this increasingly important topic in evaluation and : Jennifer C. Greene. A new book, The Power of Pragmatism: Knowledge Production and Social Inquiry, co-edited by Jane Wills, University of Exeter and professor Robert W. Lake of the Bloustein School, outlines the origins and implications of this way of thinking for a range of professions from social science to cartography, urban management, and planning.
