“I like the focus on empiricism and the attempt to illustrate numerous research puzzles throughout.”
“A great overview of research methods written by and for political scientists.”
“This textbook is an informative and broad first foray into political science research methods that is appropriate for any early undergraduate student.”
“This is a solid text that walks students through the entire process of empirical quantitative research methods in political science without being too math-heavy. Students will be able to read this book and come away with an increased understanding of how we use research methods in political science.”
Language is very simple and a good introductory book for junior class.
Compared to other introductory political science research methods books, I find this one to be very hands-on, easy to follow, and visually appealing. I am excited to use this textbook for the first time in the summer and will provide feedback to you all from my students about the textbook! Thank you!
