"Corbett's done a very good job writing for his audience--undergraduate political science majors. He sticks to topics that undergraduates can deal with, and literally takes the student through each process one step at a time. . .Plus, this book is fun! It's a good mix of 'hands-on' computer work and basic principles and practices of empirical political science." --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
