Tight, M. Researching higher education, 2nd edition. McGraw-Hill, Maidenhead, 2012. ISBN: 9780335241835. Pages: 296.

The 2nd edition of this highly successful book combines an up-to-date overview of key areas of research into higher education and a thorough guide to the fundamental processes involved in undertaking such research. The author evaluates the current state of the field by analysing research published on both sides of the Atlantic (the new edition includes North America) by topic, method, theory, and level.
