Philosophy of Social Science: The Methods, Ideals, and Politics of Social Inquiry

Blackwell (1993)
Abstract
This book is a critical introduction to the philosophy of social science. While most social scientists maintain that the social sciences should stand free of politics, this book argues that they should be politically partisan. Root offers a clear description and provocative criticism of many of the methods and ideals that guide research and teaching in the social sciences
