The contents of this volume represent unusually important and lucid contributions to our understanding of the extent to which research, including program evaluation, must be considered a plural enterprise. Chapter One ties together the overall strategies of critical multiplism and meta-analysis and relates them both to generalizability theory. Issues of generalizability are inherently plural. Together, chapters Two and Three show how advantage increases if pluralism is planned and deliberate, whether at the stage of formulating problems and conducting research or at the stage of synthesizing and interpreting the findings of multiple studies. No single study is likely to yield findings that we should consider definitive. The same can probably be said of program evaluations. Certainly no single study can teach us much of what we need to know. Chapter Two, on critical multiplism, describes an overall strategy for the conduct of research. This strategy is applicable to the aggregate efforts of a set of researchers working on problems in common, but it also has implications for the planning of individual research. Chapter Three, on meta-analysis, outlines a strategy for capitalizing on the multiplism achieved by investigators working on a problem whether that multiplism was planned or not. In general, this volume is aimed at helping us to plan our research in a way that maximizes the return on the time and effort that we have invested in it.

Offering a variety of innovative methods and tools, The Oxford Handbook of Multimethod and Mixed Methods Research Inquiry provides the most comprehensive and up-to-date presentation on multi- and mixed-methods research available. Written in clear and concise language by leading scholars in the field, it enhances and disrupts traditional ways of asking and addressing complex research questions. Topics include an overview of theory, paradigms, and scientific inquiry; a guide to conducting a multi- and mixed-methods research study from start to finish; current uses of multi- and mixed-methods research across academic disciplines and research fields; the latest technologies and how they can be incorporated into study design; and a presentation of multiple perspectives on the key remaining debates. Each chapter in the volume is structured to include state-of-the-art research examples that cross a range of disciplines and interdisciplinary research settings. In addition, the Handbook offers multiple quantitative and qualitative theoretical and interdisciplinary visions and praxis. Researchers, faculty, graduate students, and policy makers will appreciate the exceptional, timely, and critical coverage in this Handbook, which deftly addresses the interdisciplinary and complex questions that a diverse set of research communities are facing today.
