Rethinking Social Inquiry by Brady/Collier, ed.
Rethinking Social Inquiry: Divepb
by Brady/Collier, ed.
 
Rethinking Social Inquiry Diverse Tools, Shared Standards, Second Edition, http//www.rowman.com/isbn/1442203439 sustains the dialogue with King, Keohane, and Verba's Designing Social Inquiry that was the centerpiece of the first edition. A new introduction updates this dialogue, arguing that issues of methodology remain highly contentious today. Part II of the second edition engages ongoing debates on methodsand the introduction to this section provides a wider framing for five new chapters. Three chapters present a novel synthesis of a major tool for gaining qualitative insightprocess tracingwhich focuses on diagnostic pieces of evidence that provide strong leverage in causal inference. Two final chapters explore the pitfalls of regression-based causal inference and offer an extended evaluation of natural experiments. A distinctive feature of the second edition is the online placement of four chapters from the first edition, all focused on the dialogue with King, Keohane, and Verba's book. Also posted online are exercises for teaching process tracing.
