'[This book] represents an important contribution to the ongoing debate surrounding the use of mixed methods in social sciences and humanities and presents an argument that the conventional, paradigmatic view of qualitative and quantitative research is outdated and in need of replacement...Essential reading for anyone actively engaged in qualitative, quantitative, and mixed methods research, and for students of social research methods' - Abstracts of Public Administration, Development, and Environment
Very good text wherein the mixed methods approach is coherently developed and its current (and potential) applications are described in clear, useful and interesting ways. I particularly liked the depth of understanding with Bergman demonstrating subtle implications of the advances. For the undergraduate level, I felt this was perhaps too advanced but well worth a read if the mixed methods approach is adopted.
