Krippendorff introduces social scientists to information theory and explains its application for structural modeling. He discusses key topics such as: how to confirm an information theory model; its use in exploratory research; and how it compares with other approaches such as network analysis, path analysis, chi square and analysis of variance.

Information Theory simplifies and clarifies a complex but powerful statistical method for analysing multivariate qualitative data. It will serve both as a textbook and as a sourcebook for researchers in communication theory, information theory and systems theory.
