International Comparative Research

Theory, methods and practice

by Linda Hantrais

About the book

International Comparative Research answers the need for an authoritative analysis of the what, why and how questions raised by research in the social sciences and humanities that crosses national, societal, cultural and disciplinary boundaries. The book offers a comprehensive topic-based overview of the theory, methods, management and practice of comparative research. In doing so, it addresses the concerns not only of researchers but also of those commissioning international projects or using the findings from research in international settings.
