Abstract

Authors of methodology textbooks in every discipline face the same choices: What audience should be targeted? How advanced, how technical, how comprehensive, and how closely linked to current technology should the book be? How broad and how deep should discussions of substantive or theoretical literature, problems of research design, or pure techniques be? Since the market for such textbooks among historians is small, and since no group or association in the discipline has organized a coordinated series of monographs, the options open to authors are limited.
