Автор: Howard Christopher Название: Thinking Like a Political Scientist: A Practical Guide to Research Methods ISBN: 022632754X ISBN-13(EAN): 9780226327549 Издательство: Wiley Рейтинг: Цена: 13990 T Наличие на складе: Есть у поставщика Поставка под заказ. Описание: Each year, tens of thousands of students who are interested in politics go through a rite of passage: they take a course in research methods. Many find the subject to be boring or confusing, and with good reason. Most of the standard books on research methods fail to highlight the most important concepts and questions. Instead, they brim with dry technical definitions and focus heavily on statistical analysis, slighting other valuable methods. This approach not only dulls potential enjoyment of the course, but prevents students from mastering the skills they need to engage more directly and meaningfully with a wide variety of research.
With wit and practical wisdom, Christopher Howard draws on more than a decade of experience teaching research methods to transform a typically dreary subject and teach budding political scientists the critical skills they need to read published research more effectively and produce better research of their own. The first part of the book is devoted to asking three fundamental questions in political science: What happened? Why? Who cares? In the second section, Howard demonstrates how to answer these questions by choosing an appropriate research design, selecting cases, and working with numbers and written documents as evidence. Drawing on examples from American and comparative politics, international relations, and public policy, Thinking Like a Political Scientist highlights the most common challenges that political scientists routinely face, and each chapter concludes with exercises so that students can practice dealing with those challenges.

Автор: Longuski James Название: The Seven Secrets of How to Think Like a Rocket Scientist ISBN: 0387308768 ISBN-13(EAN): 9780387308760 Издательство: Springer Рейтинг: Цена: 9460 T Наличие на складе: Есть у поставщика Поставка под заказ. Описание: Explains the methods that rocket scientists useвЂ”expressed in a way that could be applied in everyday life. The book illustrates the methods (the 7 secrets) with anecdotes, quotations and biographical sketches of famous scientists, ideas from sci-fi, personal stories and insights, and occasionally a bit of space history. The author reveals that rocket science is just common sense applied to the extraordinarily uncommon environment of outer space and that rocket scientists are people, too.PRAISE FOR BOOKItвЂ™s really great!вЂ”Dr. Buzz Aldrin, Lunar Module Pilot, First Manned Landing on the Moon"People of EarthвЂ¦Attention!" Jim Longuski's book takes you on a journey of exploration to that nearly infinite space between the ears and behind the brows of that most mysterious of all creaturesвЂ”the rocket scientist! Going well beyond the oft-used aphorisms, where no writer has gone before, he shows you how these gifted individuals think, feel, work, play, fantasize, rationalize, laugh and cry. From the glories of their epoch-making achievements to the tragedies of their magnificent failures, it is all here, told with insight, humor, objectivity and personal perspective. Without being preachy, lessons are offered that apply to anyone seeking to make professional or personal life just a little bit more successful and fun. I just couldn't set this book down!вЂ”Robert Cesarone, Rocket Scientist, Voyager Navigator, Space Communications ArchitectThis book is a must read for everyoneвЂ”not just those who think they want to know how Rocket Scientists think. Do not be scared off by the title; itвЂ™s a delightful and wonderfully useful easy read.вЂ”Dr. William J.

Описание: Social responsibility and social capital are high on the agenda of governments and corporations. But what of the small firm? Little is known about the small firm response to social issues, despite their domination of the business landscape. This is an introduction to multivariate analysis and techniques written in a non-mathematical style. It starts from a simple hypothesis testing, moves towards model-building and takes the reader through the basics of multivariate analysis.

Автор: Elster, Jon Название: Alexis de tocqueville, the first social scientist ISBN: 052174007X ISBN-13(EAN): 9780521740074 Издательство: Cambridge Academ Рейтинг: Цена: 11770 T Наличие на складе: Есть у поставщика Поставка под заказ. Описание: The book proposes a new interpretation of Alexis de Tocqueville that views him first and foremost as a social scientist rather than as a political theorist. Drawing on his earlier work on the explanation of social behavior, Elster argues that Tocqueville’s main claim to our attention today rests on the large number of exportable causal mechanisms to be found in his work, many of which are still worthy of further exploration. Elster proposes a novel reading of Democracy in America in which the key explanatory variable is the rapid economic and political turnover rather than equality of wealth at any given point in time. He also offers a reading of The Ancien R?gime and the Revolution as grounded in the psychological relations among the peasantry, the bourgeoisie, and the nobility. Consistently going beyond exegetical commentary, he argues that Tocqueville is eminently worth reading today for his substantive and methodological insights.
Автор: Gilbert Название: Simulation for the social scientist ISBN: 0335216005 ISBN-13(EAN): 9780335216000 Издательство: McGraw-Hill Рейтинг: Цена: 13680 T Наличие на складе: Есть у поставщика Поставка под заказ. Описание: An invaluable guide to the complex and increasingly vital study of social simulation, this is a revised, completely updated edition of the practical textbook that examines the techniques of building computer simulations to assist understanding of social and economic issues and problems. Interest in social simulation has been growing rapidly worldwide as a result of increasingly powerful hardware capabilities and software programs. The focus on this area of expertise is also influenced by a rising interest in the application of ideas of complexity, evolution, adaptation, and chaos in the social sciences. This authoritative book details all of the common approaches to social simulation, to provide social scientists with an appreciation of the literature and allow those, with some programming skills, to create their own simulations. New for this edition are a chapter on how to use simulation as a tool, as well as a chapter on multi-agent systems to explain why and how multi-agent modeling has become the preferred approach to simulation.
Автор: Micah Altman Название: Numerical Issues in Statistical Computing for the Social Scientist ISBN: 0471236330 ISBN-13(EAN): 9780471236337 Издательство: Wiley Рейтинг: Цена: 86460 T Наличие на складе: Есть у поставщика Поставка под заказ. Описание: Addressing the current deficiency in the literature on statistical methods as they apply to the social and behavioral sciences, Numerical Issues in Statistical Computing for the Social Scientist provides readers with a unique, practical guidebook to the numerical methods underlying computerized statistical calculations specific to these fields. The authors demonstrate that knowledge of these numerical methods, and how they are used in statistical packages, is essential for making accurate inferences. With the aid of key contributors from both the social and behavioral sciences, the authors have assembled a rich set of interrelated chapters designed to guide empirical social scientists through the potential minefield of modern statistical computing. Uniquely accessible and abounding in modern-day tools, tricks, and advice, the text successfully bridges the gap between the current level of social science methodology and the more sophisticated technical coverage usually associated with the statistical field.
