Summary

The Fourth Edition of Robert K. Yin's bestselling text presents the breadth of the case study method but at a detailed level and serves as a complete portal to the world of case study research. The Fourth Edition now covers more than 50 case studies, about one-quarter of them not cited in earlier editions, with vignettes of the case studies appearing throughout the text. Similarly, this edition contains numerous citations to the most recent literature. New methodological insights cover the similarities between case studies and other social science methods. The book gives fresh attention to different quantitative analyses as they might be used as parts of case studies and also discusses more fully the use of mixed methods research designs.
