From the Back Cover This book presents a forceful argument for the philosophical and practical utility of the Bayesian approach in many social science settings.

The first part of this book presents the foundations of Bayesian inference, via simple inferential problems in the social sciences: proportions, cross-tabulations, counts, means and regression analysis.

This 2009 text book on Bayesian Analysis at the graduate school level is the best I have ever seen, and is a welcomed addition to the literature. It is for serious "scholars" of statistics, applied statistics, and comples data analysis. It comes with code and examples ready for use in the R statistical computing environment. Jackman shows how books in Bayesian statistics should be written: clearly, succinctly and with thorough mathematical clarity! The diagrams on prior and posterior graphs are just the ones needed to get an intuitive sense of the Bayes theorem.

Bayesian methods are increasingly being used in the social sciences, as the problems encountered lend themselves so naturally to the subjective qualities of Bayesian methodology. This book provides an accessible introduction to Bayesian methods, tailored specifically for social science students. It contains lots of real examples from political science, psychology, sociology, and economics, exercises in all chapters, and detailed descriptions of all the key concepts, without assuming any background in statistics beyond a first course. It features examples of how to implement the methods using WinBUGS – the most-widely used Bayesian analysis software in the world – and R – an open-source statistical software. The book is supported by a Website featuring WinBUGS and R code, and data sets.

I found this book to be very helpful. Jackman takes his time to explain MCMC, slowly and comprehensively. He divides Monte Carlo and Markov chains into two separate chapters. Then, he combines the techniques and shows how to run JAGS from R to obtain summaries and estimates. It is especially helpful that he includes a number of examples, which he explains in great detail (including line-by-line discussion of the R code). Finally, the book concludes with three chapters of useful applications. Although hierarchical models are covered by other texts (e.g., Gelman and Hill, 2007), Jackman's chapter is well worth reading as he systematically introduces the model and shows how to run the programs in R. This applications section ends with the clearest explanation of Bayesian measurement models that I have seen. (You should also visit Jackman's website where he has code and materials for a course he teaches using this text.)

I would highly recommend this book for anyone with a social science background looking for a comprehensive introduction to Bayesian inference and the R packages needed to run the analysis.

This book makes difficult concepts accessible through lucid discussion and concrete examples. The examples make it easy to apply the techniques to ones own problems.

This is one of the most intuitive of all books in statistics and mathematical writing. Jackman shows how books in Bayesian statistics should be written: clearly, succinctly and with thorough mathematical clarity! The diagrams on prior and posterior graphs are just the ones needed to get an intuitive sense of the Bayes theorem.

Outstanding!!!, every proof is step by step.
