Product description

Review

'This book by Moore and Siegel, intended for the advanced political and social science student, appropriately avoids mathematical proofs and unnecessarily formal definitions while maintaining rigor and proper terminology. . . . When needed, the clear illustrations accompany the material, providing strong visualization of the related concept.'--Choice'Written in an intuitive and accessible way, this book can be used as a primer for math novices in the social sciences as well as a handy reference for the researchers in this area.'--Nicolae Popovici, Studia Mathematica

From the Back Cover

"Moore and Siegel provide an exceptionally clear exposition for political scientists with little formal training in mathematics. They do this by emphasizing intuition and providing reasons for why the topic is important. Anyone who has taught a first-year graduate course in political methodology has heard students ask why they need to know mathematics. It is refreshing to have the answers in this book."--Jan Box-Steffensmeier, Ohio State University

"This highly accessible book provides a comprehensive introduction to the essential mathematical concepts political science students need to succeed in graduate school and their research careers. It assumes students have no mathematical background beyond high school algebra, and uses examples from political science. Moore and Siegel explain concepts in plain English and do an excellent job balancing the technical details with the intuition needed to understand them."--Kyle A. Joyce, University of California, Davis

"The major hurdle in teaching math to political science graduate students isn't the math. It's convincing them to concentrate on difficult topics that seem abstruse and useless. This book persistently reminds students why quantitative methods are the coin of the political science realm. I can see it becoming a staple of graduate courses for years."--William Minozzi, Ohio State University
