In this new Seventh Edition of his perennially successful social research text, author Russell K. Schutt, an award-winning researcher and teacher, continues to make research come alive through research stories that illustrate the methods presented in each chapter. Through numerous examples and hands-on exercises that help students learn by doing, Investigating the Social World, Seventh Edition helps readers understand research methods as an integrated whole.

Edwards, Writing in Sociology
With humor and empathy, this handbook provides undergraduate and early-career graduate students guidance in sociological writing of all kinds. It offers unusual approaches to developing ideas into research questions, utilizing research literature, constructing research papers, and completing different kinds of course writing (including case studies, theory papers, and applied social science projects).

By focusing on how to think about the goals and strategies implicit in each section of a writing project, this book provides accessible advice to novice sociological writers.

Meet the Author

Russell K. Schutt (Ph D, MA, BA, University of Illinois at Chicago; postdoctoral fellow in the Sociology of Social Control Training Program at Yale University) is professor and chair of sociology at the University of Massachusetts, Boston and lecturer on sociology in the Department of Psychiatry at the Harvard Medical School. In addition to Investigating the Social World: The Process and Practice of Research and its numerous co-authored adaptations for other disciplines, his books include Homelessness, Housing, and Mental Illness (Harvard University Press) and Organization in a Changing Environment (SUNY Press). Dr. Schutt’s scholarship focuses on the bidirectional relationship between individuals and their social environment; its consequences for organizational change, cognitive functioning, and individual behavior; and its predictors in individual orientations and community contexts. His related articles have been published in journals ranging from the American Journal of Sociology, Social Problems, Law and Society Review, and the Journal of Offender Rehabilitation to the Journal of Community Health, Journal of Community Psychology, Schizophrenia Bulletin, Women and Health, Evaluation & Program Planning, and the Journal of Sociology and Social Welfare. His major research projects have been funded by the Veterans Health Administration, the National Cancer Institute, the Massachusetts Department of Public Health, the National Institute of Mental Health, the John E. Fetzer Institute, and state and local sources.

Since 1997, Mark Edwards (Ph.D., University of Washington) has taught stratification, research methods and writing, and social statistics in the Sociology Department at Oregon State University. His recent research on food insecurity has been used by nonprofit groups, state agencies, and the media addressing domestic hunger in the Northwest. Many of his research papers have appeared in social science journals such as Social Forces, Rural Sociology, and Social Science Quarterly. But a favorite part of his work is helping students improve their social science writing.
