 A review of the
book. Stephen Morgan, Cornell University. Sociological Methods and
Research, Vol 32, No 3, February 2004, pp 411416.
This is to give you a flavor of the book and some of the issues that
arise. The first link gets you to a home page about the book, I think,
while the second is one of the reviews. This is preliminary reading
that should be done before we begin reading the book itself.
