Industry Reviews

[T]his text should be read not only by graduate students, but all scholars preparing to conduct global social science research. It provides reflections on many of the complex theoretical, ethical, and practical issues that inevitably arise along the way, but that researchers are often unprepared to encounter. . . . The importance of interdisciplinary scholarship providing clear insights about how global research questions are asked and answered is rendered even more significant by this well-curated collection.--International Social Science Review
