The place to write, read and discuss book reviews!

 

Each month we will be offering two copies of a SAGE book for review. So keep an eye out for those posts, added to the Comments Wall, and let us know if you would like to review the book.


Book reviews should be a minimum 500 words, and should be completed within 2 months of receipt of the book. Books will be allocated to reviewers on a first come first served basis (
If a reviewer has reviews outstanding they will be asked to submit that review before receiving any further review copies).

 
If you would like to post a book review, please post it as a new discussion in the forum.

Hi Clive and Nadia,

It seems that you are the winners of this month's competition! I believe I have both of your addresses, so I shall dispatch the books right away!

Have a nice day,

Lucia

Hi Lucia

I have just received June's Book. Can I ask for this as well? I can devote my time reading during this summer.

If possible, I would like to review July's book too.

Regards

Hi Lucia,

I'd like to review Hammersley's 'The Limits of Social Science'.

Many Thanks

Clive

JULY’S BOOK FOR REVIEW

What book are you packing for your holiday? This is our suggestion:

This month we have two copies of The Limits of Social Science  by Martyn Hammersley available for review.

This book engages with key intellectual challenges facing social science today, at a time when it is under considerable pressure to demonstrate its value. It addresses questions that carry implications for research practice, quantitative or qualitative, by making use of contemporary examples, such as the London riots.

If you would like to review this book, just let me know via this wall (and I will get in touch to ask for your details). It’s first come first served, so the two copies will go to the first two members of the group to make a request.

Best,

Lucia

Hi Nadia and Stanislava, you are our winners for this month! I have both your addresses and you should receive your copy soon!

Ibrahim, I am happy to know that you were interested, but I thought we should give somebody else the chance, since you are busy reviewing Presenting Your Research. Not to worry, many more interesting books will be available for review!

 

Have a nice weekend,

Lucia

JUNE’S BOOK FOR REVIEW

The sun is out, and so is our book for the month:

We have two copies of Social Science Research by Barbara Czarniawska available for review.

This clear, straightforward textbook embraces the practical reality of actually doing fieldwork. It tackles the common problems faced by new researchers head on, offering sensible advice and instructive case studies from the author’s own experience.

 

If you would like to review this book, just let me know via this wall (and I will get in touch to ask for your details). It’s first come first served, so the two copies will go to the first two members of the group to make a request.

 

Best,     

 

Lucia
