The Third Edition of Nigel Gilbert's hugely successful Researching Social Life covers the whole range of methods from quantitative to qualitative in a down-to-earth and unthreatening manner.
Internationally-renowned experts in the field have thoroughly expanded and updated this edition with new chapters and additional material on: mixed methods, participative action research, virtual methods, grounded theory, narrative analysis, searching for and reviewing literature, and refining the research question.
Worked examples, case studies, discussion questions, project ideas and checklists are included throughout the book to help those new to research to engage with the material.
Researching Social Life follows the `life cycle' of a typical research project, from initial conception through to eventual publication. Its breadth and depth of coverage make this an indispensable companion for students on social research methods courses in any discipline.

Nigel Gilbert read for a first degree in Engineering, intending to go into the computer industry. However, he was lured into sociology and obtained his doctorate on the sociology of scientific knowledge from the University of Cambridge, under the supervision of Michael Mulkay. His research and teaching interests have reflected his continuing interest in both sociology and computer science (and engineering more widely).
His main research interests are processual theories of social phenomena, the development of computational sociology and the methodology of computer simulation, especially agent-based modelling. He is Director of the Centre for Research in Social Simulation.
He is also Director of the University's Institute of Advanced Studies and responsible for its development as a leading centre for intellectual interchange.
He is the author or editor of several textbooks on sociological methods of research and statistics and editor of the Journal of Artificial Societies and Social Simulation.
