About the Book
This edition entitled Methodology of Political Research re-examines theoretical and empirical development of research methodology in political science. In this edition we have tried to convey the limited overview on experimentation and implication of applied research methodology in political science. Most critically experimentation is generated or contributed to the central importance concern in this discipline. Of course, research in political science could be done better and in it scholarly attempt has been made to suggest some principles that might facilitate this goal. We can look forward with anticipation as to ‘what the next generation of experimentation in political science will bring’. I hope that this work will stimulate researchers, and professionals to execute researches in the area of political methodology.
