Summary Interdisciplinary research is a burgeoning field, largely due to its ability to tackle complex problems facing humanity that extend beyond a single disciplinary perspective and require interdisciplinary thinking and research for their resolution. Case Studies in Interdisciplinary Research successfully applies the model of the interdisciplinary research process outlined by author Allen F. Repko in Interdisciplinary Research (SAGE, ©2008) to a wide spectrum of challenging research questions. Self-contained case studies, written by leaders in the field and utilizing best-practice techniques in conducting interdisciplinary research, show students how to apply the interdisciplinary research process to a variety of problems. --Book Jacket
