Who was Dr. Cronin and why did his death transfix nineteenth-century Chicago? Might it have anything to do with Clan na Gael, the Irish “secret society” devoted to freeing Ireland from British rule by any means possible? Irish-born Patrick Henry Cronin was a well-respected Chicagoan: a successful physician, an active church member, a popular singer. He was also a member of Clan na Gael. Early in 1889, Cronin had a falling out with the Clan’s leader, Alexander Sullivan, and not long after that he disappeared. After weeks of feverish speculation in the papers, Cronin’s whereabouts became clear when his naked and beaten body was pulled from a north-side sewer—at which point all hell broke loose in the media, the courts, and the streets. An extensive murder investigation ensued, and many secrets were eventually revealed in a complex tale of murder and justice in Irish Chicago. This is a gripping read, told in an accessible voice, which brings that murky time and place to life for a contemporary audience.

Examining the major approaches to hypothesis testing and model selection, this book blends statistical theory with recommendations for practice, illustrated with real-world social science examples. It systematically compares classical (frequentist) and Bayesian approaches, showing how they are applied, exploring ways to reconcile the differences between them, and evaluating key controversies and criticisms. The book also addresses the role of hypothesis testing in the evaluation of theories, the relationship between hypothesis tests and confidence intervals, and the role of prior knowledge in Bayesian estimation and Bayesian hypothesis testing. Two easily calculated alternatives to standard hypothesis tests are discussed in depth: the Akaike information criterion (AIC) and Bayesian information criterion (BIC). The companion website ([ital]www.guilford.com/weakliem-materials[/ital]) supplies data and syntax files for the book's examples.
