New Methods for Social History

During the last 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 non-initiated readers and use as little jargon as possible. Methods are explained through the use of historical case studies; annotated topical bibliographies have been added.
