    Research Decisions offers a concise yet comprehensive overview of the approaches and methods involved in performing social research. It lays the foundations for good research by exploring what it means to be a member of the social sciences community. The book's thesis acknowledges the differences between the two main approaches to research (quantitative and qualitative), but offers that these differences should be interpreted as a source of strength rather than a field of conflict. This student-friendly work emphasizes practical issues and has been praised for its liberal use of Canadian examples from a variety of academic disciplines.A well-rounded presentation of the theory and philosophy underlying the approaches to social researchLinkages between theory and data are thoroughly examined throughout the bookComplex material is explained clearly in this student-friendly bookIncludes coverage of computer-assisted data analysisEmphasizes practical issues such as the importance of formulating research objectivesGives special attention to actual data-gathering procedures including sampling, interviews, questionnaires, observational strategies, and on-site researchIncludes Canadian examples throughout
