Thinking about methodology through this lens provides a new framework for understanding work in the social sciences. Review"Gerring is one of the few political scientists who is equally adept at both qualitative and quantitative research, and can make the advantages of each approach clear to students.

This book sheds more light on how to study causation in the social sciences than any other text -- I recommend it to everyone from active researchers to beginning students. The bottom line is that readers reach a practical end, which is knowing what approach to use when and how to adapt based on the question posed. It is the former in that it advocates for a unified though not singular social science methodology.

It is the latter in the many ways it recommends that we think about and do science. On the one hand, Gerring has offered a compelling case for what unifies social science methodology.

This should be debated for years to come. On the other hand, students of social science will benefit enormously by closely reading this sage volume. They will find particularly valuable his thorough, but nontechnical presentation of causal analysis. A tremendous amount of careful work went into the revisions, and both methodologists and teachers of methodology owe Gerring an enormous debt for producing an even more compelling version of what was already an outstanding book.

It offers a one-volume introduction to social science methodology, relevant to disciplines across the social sciences. It covers both qualitative and quantitative methods and synthesizes the diverse field of methodology in a way that is clear, concise and comprehensive.
