Whether you are a novice needing practical help for your first piece of research or a professional in search of an accessible guide to best practice." "It is designed to guide the reader through the complete research process, whether it be a one day field study or a large dissertation project, from the nurturing of ideas and development of a proposal, to the design of an enquiry, the generation and analysis of data, to the drawing of conclusions from the results, and the presentation of the findings. The book provides a broad overview of the theoretical underpinnings and explores some of the main research methodologies currently being used in contemporary human geography."--BOOK JACKET.
