Covington, Jr. (Edinboro, Pennsylvania)-In the preface Babbie tells readers the question he seeks to answer in this book is whether we can observe ourselves scientifically. From there he launches into a description of his background, saying he had been a social scientist almost all his life (p. 1). On page 7 he says the book is not a textbook, that it is intended for three audiences: 1) for college students taking a course in social research it is a supplemental addition, 2) social researchers will find it contains essays of interest from the perspective of a colleague 3) general readers will gain some insight into the work of social researchers. #Babbie does not claim to resolve any social problems with pat answers. He says the "power of social research, then, lies more in the realm of questions than in the realm of answers" (p. 17). #The author's particular arena of investigation is religion. Studying religion caused Babbie to drift from his early training. On page 172 he writes "while I was quite religious as a young person, I had become much less so by the time I began studying religion sociologica lly. "#Overall this is a book containing essays on the study of sociology from a social scientist who seeks to explain what he does to a broad audience. He answers the question he poses originally in the affirmative, he does believe one can observe one's self.
