Book Title: Identification Problems in the Social Sciences

Author: Manski

Book Description:

While I read this book as part of an econometrics course in graduate school, I did not fully appreciate its power until much later. This book, more than any other, has greatly increased my understanding of the importance of statistical assumptions in conducting empirical research. And, because of this, I think that my work is becoming more thoughtful, more critical and more mature.
