About the Author

After receiving his Ph.D. from the University of Pittsburgh, Allen Rubin served as a researcher for the Council on Social Work Education before joining the faculty at the University of Texas at Austin in 1979, where he remains as the Bert Kruger Smith Centennial Professor. Renowned in social work, Dr. Rubin has published numerous research studies on social work practice and is a past president of the Society for Social Work and Research.

Earl R. Babbie graduated from Harvard University before enlisting in the U.S. Marine Corps. He received his Ph.D. from the University of California, Berkeley, and began teaching shortly thereafter. Credited with defining research methods for the social sciences, Dr. Babbie has written several texts, including the bestseller, THE PRACTICE OF SOCIAL RESEARCH (Cengage).

I bought this book for a course. The book arrived in excellent condition and on the early end of the estimated delivery time frame. The main points/study hints at the end of each chapter are helpful in ensuring the intended concepts are grasped.
It’s really a difficult read. Very needlessly wordy to convey the concepts of research. The exercises are helpful to cement the practical implementation of the ideas.
I am enjoying reading this textbook! Great buy! I am totally satisfied with this purchase, its was everything I expected and more.
