Description

Making Social Science Matter presents an exciting new approach to the social and behavioral sciences including theoretical argument, methodological guidelines, and examples of practical application.

Why has social science failed in attempts to emulate natural science and produce normal theory?

Bent Flyvbjerg argues that the strength of social sciences lies in its rich, reflexive analysis of values and power, essential to the social and economic development of any society.

Richly informed, powerfully argued, and clearly written, this book opens up a new future for the social sciences.

Its empowering message will make it required reading for students and academics across the social and behavioral sciences.
