Book Description

The new Making Sense of the Social World 6th edition (PDF) continues to be an unusually student-friendly and accessible introduction to the variety of social research methods; guiding undergraduate college students to understand research in their roles as consumers and novice producers of social science. Known for its casual; concise; and very clear writing; its balanced treatment of both the qualitative and quantitative approaches; and its integrated approach to the fundamentals; the textbook has much to offer both novice researchers and more advanced students alike. The expert and well-known authors use a wide variety of examples from formal studies and everyday experiences to illustrate important techniques and principles.

New to this 6th Edition:

    • Failure (and success) of pre-election polls in the 2016 Presidential election
    • The use and abuse of data from social media such as Twitter and Facebook
    • The debate over the inclusion of U.S. citizenship questions on the 2020 Census
    • Addition of material on methods widely used by student researchers; such as content analysis and “grounded theory” ethnography
    • The growth of new video techniques by researchers; and dramatically expanded use of web-based surveys (both by professionals and by college students)
    • When does research on underprivileged populations become cultural appropriation? (based on the controversy over Alice Goffman’s ethnographic studies in Philadelphia)
    • New vignettes on Research That Matters; Research in the News; and Careers and Research; to enhance the relevance of the ebook to undergraduate students and make it better for instructors as well.
