Tufte, Edward: Data Analysis for Politics and Policy: Contents/Preface

Tufte's book Data Analysis for Politics and Policy is, quite simply, excellent. The aims of the author in the writing of this book is `. . . to present fundamental material not found in statistics books, and in particular, to show techniques of quantitative analysis in action on problems of politics and policy.' To achieve this end, Tufte considers a narrow range of important topics in statistical analysis, primarily dealing with problems of prediction (including a good discussion of the concept of causation) and the relationships among variables through simple and multiple regression.

The bulk of the book concerns the use and interpretation of simple and multiple regression.
