Review: Keith F. Punch (2005). Introduction to Social Research—Quantitative & Qualitative Approaches

Constantinos N. Phellas

Abstract


PUNCH's book is composed of 12 comprehensive and very accessible chapters on quantitative, qualitative and mixed empirical methods, intended for newcomers to the social sciences. This second edition of the book provides a wide range of illustrative examples, making it easier for the student to comprehend the basics of research. I would strongly recommend it to my undergraduate students as a practical and friendly guide for their studies.
