Case studies are one of the dominant pedagogical tools across a wide variety of disciplines, from business to higher education to simple skill training. However, that does not mean that every case used in every field is properly sourced, constructed, and relevant to the topic at hand. Princeton Professor of Politics and International Affairs Jennifer Widner, along with her co-authors Michael Woolcock and Daniel Ortega Nieto, seek to bridge the gaps in the use of case studies, asserting how to select, prepare, and understand various cases. The Case for Case Studies (Cambridge University Press) ultimately provides useful guidance across widely varying fields.
