About the Authors
  • During the past two decades sociologists have developed a range of new research methods that could be of much use to social historians. The present collection of essays introduces some of the most interesting of these new methods: event structure analysis, words-to-numbers, network analysis, qualitative comparative analysis, fuzzy logic, and recursive regression. All essays are written by outstanding experts, address noninitiated readers and use as little jargon as possible. Methods are explained through the use of historical case studies; annotated topical bibliographies have been added.

    • Its pedagogical approach means that it could be used as a textbook for university courses
    • Bridges gap between the disciplines of sociology and history
