Case Studies in Interdisciplinary Research


Other Titles in:
Research Methods (General)

March 2011 | 368 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
This book is intended as a "stand alone" volume that (1) demonstrates the need for using an explicitly interdisciplinary approach to problems that span multiple disciplines, (2) applies interdisciplinary theory and best practices to a particular set of problems, (3) shows the importance of first creating common ground among conflicting expert views before performing integration, and (4) produces new understandings of these problems that are practical, purposeful, and deeply informed by disciplinary expertise.

Interesting text in that it is really more or less an analysis/exploration of several case studies, each of which provides a different lens by which to view how one wishes to proceed in an interdisciplinary approach to conducting case studies. A great read in of itself, but not a "text book" per se, at least not in the way that I require. Still, very informative.

Case studies are appropriate and a "hands-on" way to demonstrate theory and method in interdisciplinary research today.

Prefer Repko's Methods text as it covers foundation for all students. This text is level above what my students can "digest".

This compliments Repko's earlier book Interdisciplinary Research and provides examples that demonstrates the interconnectedness of using multiple disciplines in Leadership..
