This guide to effective academic research covers all facets of the research process, from finding and defining a suitable topic, performing literature surveys, and conducting research to analyzing and disseminating the results. The subject is placed in the context of South Africa, where the university systems, funding bodies, and the country's research needs are different than those of Europeans and North Americans. The methodologies discussed include traditional modes of inquiry, research technology such as the Internet, and the role of oral tradition in the social sciences. Discussion questions and exercises are provided at the end of each section.

Hi
I am a Cape Town Masters Student and I found this book amazing. It helped in defining concepts and add meaning to my proposal for my thesis. I do recommend this book to all students if your
advance, beginners, well you'll find it easy to understand with it detailed definitions and great examples that follow. The book being South African base definitely helped as I could relate to the jargon and structure.
Thank you for adding to the pool of knowledge, I highly appreciated it :)
