It focuses on scientifically-based methods, school accountability, and the professional demands of the twenty-first century, empowering researchers to take an active role in conducting research in their classrooms, districts, and the greater educational community. Like the first edition, this edition helps students, educators, and researchers develop a broad and deep understanding of research methodologies. It includes substantial new content on the impact of No Child Left Behind legislation, school reform, quantitative and qualitative methodologies, logic modeling, action research, and other areas. Special features to assist the teaching and learning processes include vignettes illustrating research tied to practice, suggested readings at the end of each chapter, and discussion questions to reinforce chapter content. Praise for the Previous Edition "A new attempt to make this subject more relevant and appealing to students. Most striking is how useful this book is because it is really grounded in educational research. It is very well written and quite relevant for educational researchers or for the student hoping to become one." -PsycCRITIQUES/American Psychological Association "I applaud the authors for their attempt to cover a wide range of material. The straightforward language of the book helps make the material understandable for readers." -Journal of MultiDisciplinary Evaluation

There are many ways to handle manipulation by individuals, a group, or government. Firstly, we need to recognise and understand a manipulative act, how it works, its motives, and why we, in particular, are its victims. To this end, the author seeks to illuminate "Human Manipulation" at all levels. This analysis provides the reader with a detailed definition, an understanding of the history and morality of human manipulation and an insight into the psychology of the manipulator and victim. The book identifies and examines 450 manipulative techniques in detail and explains what a victim can do to recognise, avoid and counteract them. Manipulation generally relies on human ignorance. So the better informed we are, the better our chances of detecting and managing manipulation when it is directed at us. This handbook is probably the most comprehensive study of human manipulation anywhere. It is a "must have" for any serious student of the subject.

This is a second edition to the original published by Springer in 2006. The comprehensive volume takes a textbook approach systematically developing the field by starting from linear models and then moving up to generalized linear and non-linear mixed effects models. Since the first edition was published the field has grown considerably in terms of maturity and technicality. The second edition of the book therefore considerably expands with the addition of three new chapters relating to Bayesian models, Generalized linear and nonlinear mixed effects models, and Principles of simulation. In addition, many of the other chapters have been expanded and updated.
