Background reading

Background reading I have found of value

Goertz, G., Mahoney, J., 2012. A Tale of Two Cultures: Qualitative and Quantitative Research in the Social Sciences. Princeton University Press. Great background context for the kind of analyses possible with EvalC3

Kotu, V., Deshpande, B., 2014. Predictive Analytics and Data Mining: Concepts and Practice with RapidMiner. Morgan Kaufmann. Contains very useful chapters on Decision Tree method

Befani, B.  Evaluating Development Interventions With QCA: Potential And Pitfalls. Forthcoming 2016. The definitive book on QCA written from an evaluation perspective
