    Political science research designs are rarely true experiments, because political events and political behavior are often impossible to fit into this mold. Although some political science theories can be tested through laboratory or field experiments, most political science research is quasi-experimental or observational.   “This is a solid text that walks students through the entire process of empirical, quantitative research methods in political science without being too math-heavy. Students will be able to read this book and come away with an increased understanding of how we use research methods in political science.” —Amanda M. Rosen, Webster University.
