Über diesen Titel:


This comprehensive text contains introductory/intermediate coverage of qualitative and quantitative social work research and evaluation applications for undergraduate and graduate social work students.

Adapted from Neuman's best-selling text, Social Research Methods, this text shows students that social work research does not take place in a vacuum?that the social and political context of the social work field will affect how they conduct their research. Balanced between quantitative and qualitative approaches to research, this new text places great emphasis on diversity and ethics in research.


This comprehensive text contains introductory and intermediate coverage of qualitative and quantitative social work research and evaluation applications for undergraduate and graduate social work students.


  • Integrates diversity and strengths/empowerment coverage throughout the text.
  • Includes a complete chapter on ethics in social work research (Chapter 5), which shows students how to integrate research and ethics content.
  • Provides comprehensive coverage on how to do a literary review, write a qualitative and quantitative paper/report, and cite Internet sources.
  • Includes case studies and vignettes throughout the text, which bring a real-world focus to the subject.
  • Includes ?Statistical Package for the Social Sciences? in Appendix F, which illustrates data entry using SPSS with actual screen images to show students how to do tests of the null hypothesis, interpret significance tests, and understand measures of association.

What the reviewers are saying . . .

This book thoroughly presents all the most important topics for an introductory research text. I really like the balanced presentation of quantitative and qualitative research, the boxed material, and the reasonable price. I think this is a very good book.
?Thomas Barton, University of North Texas

This text does a superb job in covering topics important to social work research students. I can?t say enough positive things about how comprehensive I find this book?it is clearly a superior text. The coverage of ethics, literature review, and writing research reports places this book head and shoulders above the rest.
?Janice Matthews Rasheed, Loyola University of Chicago
