This accessible book introduces the cooperative process as well as the logic of empirical measurement and analysis of observations in the conception and pursuit of a political research project. Emphasizing design and basic problems of measurement and data analysis, it relies more on intuitive understanding than on formal development. Written in a clear and engaging style, this book considers the ethics of research focusing solely on politics. The fourth edition of The Craft of Political Research has been revised to include an introduction to logit analysis; a new section on regression to the mean; updated examples with a special emphasis on Robert Putnam's Making Democracy Work; an analysis of the concept of "power;" a discussion of the direction of causality; and a section on polling and tests of statistical significance. An essential reference book for any professional in politics at any level.
