Summary: With more than 400,000 copies now in print, The Craft of Research is the unrivaled resource for researchers at every level, from first year undergraduates to research reporters at corporations and government offices.

Williams present an updated third edition of their classic handbook, whose first and second editions were written in collaboration with the late Wayne C. Booth.
