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.
