Cross-cultural researchers describe, compare, and test patterns that occur in different, discrete cultures. In this brief textbook, two of the world's leading cross-cultural researchers describe both the logic of and process of doing research in this tradition. The Embers take the reader through a study, from developing a hypothesis through sampling, measuring, coding, and analysis. They point to the difficulties in developing reliable statements about cross-cultural patterns and how to minimize those difficulties. The authors also offer advice on how to use the Human Relations Area Files a worldwide database of ethnographic information to conduct cross-cultural studies. This represents the perfect brief introduction to method for students in cross-cultural anthropology and other social science disciplines. A Choice Outstanding Academic Book
