Overview

Method in Social Science was widely praised on its first publication for providing a series of penetrating reflections on central questions in social science discourse.

The introduction has been rewritten and substantially enlarged, clarifying many of the arguments that appear in the text. There is also a short discussion of the importance of narrative form, particularly useful for students concerned with the problems of writing, composition and presentation of their own material.
