About the Author

Norman Blaikie is a former Professor of Sociology at RMIT University, Melbourne, and the University of Science, Malaysia Jan Priest is a former Adjunct Professor at RMIT University, Melbourne, and Director (performance research and consulting) at InfoServ Pty Ltd in Melbourne


"Norman Blaikie and Jan Priest have written a first-rate book on methodology and, as with Blaikie s previous work, it is comprehensive, clear and erudite. It will appeal both to students who want to make sense of social research paradigms and the seasoned methodologist who will find much to inspire and consider." Malcolm Williams, Cardiff University "Thoughtful, creative and groundbreaking, Blaikie and Priest have written a text that fills a core gap in many discussions of research. This is the importance of building in, from the outset, the role of explanation as much as description of social processes. A hugely informative read for those new to social research as well as seasoned professionals like myself!" Christina Hughes, University of Warwick
