RESEARCH METHODS – PB

This book is mainly designed for students and researchers of social sciences and business administration. It is organised into six parts, covering 19 chapters, each comprehensively dealing with varied aspects of the problem under discussion. What distinguishes it from other works on the subject is that it combines the author’s personal observations—based on his extensive research experience—with the experiences of other scholars as reflected in the literature. The aim is not only to acquaint students with the judicious blend of elementary and theoretical knowledge in social research but also guide the researchers with the basic complexities of undertaking research.
The approach to analysis is interdisciplinary while examples from empirical studies conducted in Indian society make the text clearer. The book also offers the readers considerable flexibility in selecting the chapters in view of necessity and usefulness.
