Summary
"This new edition Case Study Research has been carefully revised, updated, and expanded while retaining virtually all of the features and coverage of the second edition. Robert K. Yin's comprehensive presentation covers all aspects of the case study method - from problem definition, design, and data collection to data analysis and composition and reporting. Yin also traces the uses and importance of case studies to a wide range of disciplines, including sociology, psychology, history, management, planning, social work, and education."--Jacket
