Published for the American Educational Research Association by Routledge. The Handbook of Complementary Methods in Education Research is a successor volume to AERA's earlier and highly acclaimed editions of Complementary Methods for Research in Education. More than any book to date (including its predecessors), this new volume brings together the wide range of research methods used to study education and makes the logic of inquiry for each method clear and accessible. Each method is described in detail, including its history, its research design, the questions that it addresses, ways of using the method, and ways of analyzing and reporting outcomes. Key features of this indispensable book include the following: Foundations Section-Part I is unique among research books. Its three chapters examine common philosophical, epistemological, and ethical issues facing researchers from all traditions, and frames ways of understanding the similarities and differences among traditions. Together they provide a tripartite lens through which to view and compare all research methods. Comprehensive Coverage-Part II (the heart of the book) presents 35 chapters on research design and analysis. Each chapter includes a brief historical overview of the research tradition, examines the questions that it addresses, and presents an example of how the approach can be used. Programs of Research-Part III examines how research programs connected to eight specific lines of inquiry have evolved over time. These chapters examine phenomena such as classroom interaction; language research; issues of race, culture, and difference; policy analysis; program evaluation; student learning; and teacher education. Complementary Methods-As the title suggests, a central mission of this book is to explore the compatibility of different research methods. Which methods can be productively brought together and for what purposes? How and on what scale can they be made compatible and what phenomena are they best suited to explore? Flexibility-The chapters in Parts II and III are largely independent. Therefore, selected portions of the book can be used in courses devoted to specific research methods and perspectives or to particular areas of education. Likewise, established researchers interested in acquiring new techniques or greater expertise in a given methodology will find this an indispensable reference volume. This handbook is appropriate for any of the following audiences: faculty teaching and graduate students studying education research, education researchers and other scholars seeking an accessible overview of state-of-the-art knowledge about specific methods, policy analysts and other professionals needing to better understand research methods, and academic and research libraries serving these audiences.

Б. Малиновский (1884–1942) – английский этнограф и социолог польского происхождения, один из основателей и лидеров функциональной школы в английской социальной антропологии. В настоящей работе Малиновский сосредоточен на этнографической деятельности тробрианских островитян; но со свойственной ему широтой взглядов и тонкостью восприятия пытается показать, что обмен ценностями обитателей Тробрианских и других островов ни в коей мере не является чисто коммерческой деятельностью; он показывает, что обмен удовлетворяет эмоциональные и эстетические потребности. Это позволяет ему подвергнуть критике концепцию «экономического человека». Характерным для методики Малиновского является то, что он в полной мере учитывает всю сложность человеческой природы. Он видит человека многомерным, раскрывает как эмоциональную, так и рациональную основу человеческой деятельности. Самое яркое впечатление на читателя произведет исследование влияния магии на всю жизнь и мышление тробрианских островитян.

Масштабное и революционное исследование истории товарно-денежных отношений с древнейших времен до наших дней, предпринятое американским антропологом, профессором Лондонской школы экономики и одним из «антилидеров» движения Occupy Wall street, придумавшим слоган «Мы – 99 %». Гребер, опираясь на антропологические методы, выдвигает тезис, что в основе того, что мы традиционно называем экономикой, лежит категория долга, которая на разных этапах развития общества может принимать формы денег, бартера, залогов, кредитов, акций и так далее. Один из императивов книги - вырвать экономику из лап «профессиональных экономистов», доказавших свою несостоятельность во время последнего мирового кризиса, и поместить ее в более широкий контекст истории культуры, политологии, социологии и прочих гуманитарных дисциплин. Для широкого круга читателей.
