Social scientists meet the media by Alan Bryman( )

19 editions published between 1994 and 2013 in English and held by 1,149 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Part chronicle, part analysis and part advice manual, Social Scientists Meets the Media combines the thoughts of academics and media people to produce a vivid and valuable series of accounts that will prove of service to all academics seeking a wider audience but wary of the terra incognita they face in finding one" Ellis Cashmore, Staffordshire University Social Scientists know they are in a dilemma: their work may fall prey to sensationalism, but at the same time they don't want to be overlooked. Social Scientists Meet the Media collects the experiences of academics who have sought to publicize their research. It contains personal accounts from social scientists with extensive media contact and representatives from radio, television and the press. Based on these often humorous and sometimes chastening accounts, the editors suggest ways to achieve a more fruitful relationship between social scientists and the media
Quantitative data analysis with SPSS release 8 for Windows : a guide for social scientists by Alan Bryman( )

24 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 1,063 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book largely covers the field that is generally referred to as statistics, but we have departed in a number of respects from the way in which this subject is conventionally taught to under- and post-graduates. In particular, our preferences are for integrating data analysis with computing skills and not for burdening the student with formulae. These predilections constitute a departure from many treatments of this subject. We prefer the term quantitative data analysis because the emphasis is on the understanding and analysis of data rather than on the precise nature of statistical techniques themselves
Handbook of data analysis by Melissa A Hardy( Book )

37 editions published between 2003 and 2014 in English and held by 933 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book provides a first-class, reliable guide to the basic issues in data analysis, such as the construction of variables, the characterization of distributions and the notions of inference. Scholars and students can turn to it for teaching and applied needs with confidence. The book also seeks to enhance debate in the field by tackling more advanced topics such as models of change, causality, panel models and network analysis. Specialists will find much food for thought in these chapters. A distinctive feature of the book is the breadth of coverage. No other book provides a better one-stop survey of the field of data analysis. In 30 specially commissioned chapters the editors aim to encourage readers to develop an appreciation of the range of analytic options available, so they can choose a research problem and then develop a suitable approach to data analysis."--Publisher's website
Quantitative data analysis for social scientists by Alan Bryman( Book )

44 editions published between 1990 and 1995 in 3 languages and held by 723 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Most introductions to the techniques of statistical analysis concentrate on the often complex statistical formulae involved. Many students find these formulae extremely daunting, yet in practice computers are increasingly used to perform the same calculations in seconds. Quantitative Data Analysis for Social Scientists is designed as a non-technical guide, ignoring the traditional formulaic methods and introducing students to the most widely used computer package for analysing quantitative data. This is the Statistical Package for the Social Sciences (SPSS), whose most recently released versions (for both mainframe computers and IBM-compatible personal computers) are here employed. The authors have assumed no previous familiarity with either statistics or computing, and take the reader step-by-step through each of the techniques for which SPSS can be used. Each technique is illustrated by sets of data through which the reader can work, and tested again at the end of each chapter. Answers to the exercises are provided at the end of the book. Designed specifically for social scientists, the book will be essential reading for psychology, sociology, social policy and history students following courses in statistics, data analysis or research methods
Leadership and organizations by Alan Bryman( Book )

22 editions published between 1986 and 2013 in English and held by 668 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book provides a detailed and critical examination of the literature on leadership in organizations, giving special recognition to the needs of students of organizational behaviour and the social psychology of organizations. After an examination of the complexity of the concept of leadership, the author describes the major approaches to the analysis of leadership in organizations, including: the idea that effective leaders have special traits; the various attempts to examine leader behaviour; normative approaches to the study of leadership; and the various theories which emphasize the importance of recognizing situational differences in understanding leadership effectiveness
The SAGE handbook of leadership by Alan Bryman( Book )

15 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in English and held by 625 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Leadership pervades every aspect of organizational and social life, and its study has never been more diverse, nor more fertile. With contributions from those who have defined that territory, this volume is not only a key point of reference for researchers, students and practitioners, but also an agenda-setting prospective and retrospective look at the state of leadership in the twenty-first century. It evaluates the domain and stretches it further by considering leadership scholarship from every angle, concluding with an optimistic look at the future of leaders, followers and their place in organizations and society at large
Disney and his worlds by Alan Bryman( Book )

14 editions published between 1995 and 2008 in English and held by 614 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Disney and his Worlds is a thorough overview of what is by now quite a large literature on the Disney organization, in particular the theme parks and their significance for contemporary culture. The author looks at Walt Disney's life and how his biography has been constructed; the Walt Disney Company in the years after his death; and the writings of various commentators on the Disney theme parks. He raises important issues about the parks: whether they are harbingers of postmodernism; the significance of consumption at the parks; the nature of the parks as tourism; and the representation of past and future. The discussion of theme parks is central but links with the presentation of Walt Disney's biography and his organization by showing how central economic and business considerations have been in their development, and how the significance of these considerations is typically marginalized in order to place an emphasis on fantasy and magic. In the process, the book questions the assumption that the parks are sites of postmodern sensibility

"They also include a range of exercises for further practice and cover issues such as sampling, statistical significance, conceptualisation and measurement, and the selection of appropriate tests."--Jacket
