About the Author

Chris Hart is Senior Lecturer in Management and Organizational Studies at the University of Central England, Birmingham.


"The literature review is no longer a brief preliminary to the real business of doing social research. There is no topic which has not been studied previously in some form and by some means. Research synthesis and secondary analysis have moved to the core of social inquiry. Hart's text provides clear and authoritative guidance on how to anchor a study." -- Raymond Pawson
"Chris Hart has yet again written a brilliant `hands-on' book offering a unique approach to combining theory, concepts and practical applications that push the reader's critical and creative thought boundaries to reach new scholarly heights. No matter your discipline, this is a must-have book." -- Adela McMurray
In the latter half of this 2nd edition, there is an introduction of techniques such as Rapid Evidence Assessment. In healthcare, in particular, the reader/researcher may use this technique to evaluate the application of policy into clinical practice.
This edition is a brilliant contribution to the researcher's toolkit. The author takes great care to build up the reader's understanding of literature review by providing easy to follow steps in the early chapters. -- Brian Smith * Association of Perioperative Practice *
