If you want to know the methodological approaches and divisions in political science, and to a greater sense social science, this was an adequately good book. Read it for my graduate course on Issues in Political Science.
This book offers a really great overview of the main theories and approaches of political science, and includes an analysis of methods and research design. It is clearly written and thorough.
Deathly boring but dare I admit it very helpful. Like a political research methods bible. Still.. I haven't got my marks back yet. I might have completely misunderstood the lot.
kayaknya ISBN-nya salah deh buku ini. ada yang bisa konfirmasi?
