Critical realism is not a homogeneous movement in social science. There are many different perspectives and developments. For instance, some authors discuss it from a philosophical angle, while others try to ground an analysis of current social phenomena in the approach. Our main arguments in this book can be summarized in the following way: critical realism helps us to develop and more sharply argue for, first, that science should have generalizing claims.

This book is a comprehensive source that after you read it, you are able to understand what the CR philosophy is and how various CR methods can be utilized. I love to read it again.

Danermark et al.'s guide to critical realism is excellent for students at the graduate and undergraduate levels. The authors draw on multiple sources in the field: Bhaskar, Sayer, Collier, Archer, and more. I recommend it to anybody that wants to know the basis of the critical realist paradigm.
  • Manazar
Explaining Society is geared primarily for those in the social science field and thus makes for a rather hard and technical read. In it, the philosophical framework (or, in social science jargon, the meta-theory) of critical realism is introduced and then helpfully explained. The book then spends a few chapters showing how critical realist thinking can be applied to on the ground social scientific research.

Critical realism is slowly becoming an important meta-theoretical framework (particularly in Sociology) with scholars such as Phil Gorski, Christian Smith, and Margaret Archer as leading proponents. That said, this is the most accessible introduction to the topic and its usefulness. If you are in the discipline, it is certainly worth reading and probably worth owning. If you aren't, this would only be for the most adventurous. If you are just philosophically minded and want to know more about critical realism, you are better off just heading straight for Roy Bhaskars' works (or Christian Smith's 2010 release).
