Constructing social research : the unity and diversity of method by Charles C Ragin( Book )

19 editions published between 2010 and 2019 in English and held by 246 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Constructing Social Research, Second Edition" is a concise, innovative text designed for undergraduate Research Methods courses in the Social Sciences. This "Sociology for a New Century Series" text effectively highlights the unity and diversity of methods across disciplines and cultures using comparative and historical examples. Ragin and Amoroso clearly demonstrate the similarities among three major traditions: qualitative research on commonalities, comparative research on diversity, and quantitative research on relationships among variables. Together, these three compelling research strategies provide a solid foundation for studying all social phenomena, from examining the complexities of everyday life to investigating the power of transnational processes. This edition includes a new Chapter 4 'The Ethics of Social Research' to provide more in-depth information on this vital topic. Ragin and Amoroso offer a new succinct overview of the scientific method, illuminating the contrast between this method and the alternative presented in the text. To illustrate the various types of data collection associated with qualitative, comparative, and quantitative research, each chapter within the 'Strategies of Social Research' section includes new, detailed examples
Autonomy and marital transitions in Germany and the United States (1980-2000) by Lisa M Amoroso( )

2 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Welfare state regimes play a role in shaping individuals' autonomy from labor markets and familial dependencies, and in shaping the classification schemes structuring interaction. My empirical design allowed for comparison across gender policy regimes as well as within the regimes. By considering status groups as an intermediate structurally determined level of analysis, I find substantial variation within regimes. My empirical results demonstrate that status group membership plays a significant role in economic outcomes following marital transitions. In addition, the results demonstrate that aggregate analyses contribute to a statistical privileging of some groups over others
