Documentary & Archival Research, Hardback Book

Documentary & Archival Research Hardback

Edited by Jason Hughes, John Goodwin

Part of the Sage Benchmarks in Social Research Methods series


This research tradition has arisen from a specific set of historical, disciplinary and institutional conditions.

The very emergence of 'documentation' is predicated upon a set of long-term processes in which humans have developed the capacity to use symbols and store knowledge such that it can be exchanged and inter-generationally transmitted.Consisting of an impressive list of contributors, the four volumes discuss the history, development and current debates alive in the field, such as the biographical turn in social science, the theoretical underpinnings to using human documents in social research and the epistemological, substantive and practical concerns with the process of analyzing data from human documentary sources.Comprehensive, illuminating and dynamic, this collection will have appeal across all social science disciplines, especially sociology, social psychology, criminology, politics and international relations, management and business studies, human geography, media and communication studiesVolume One: Human Documents: Perspectives and ApproachesVolume Two: Analyzing Human DocumentsVolume Three: Human Documents in Social ResearchVolume Four: Archival Research and Data Re-Use
