One paper generates upper and lower bounds on the rates of COVID infection under minimal assumptions, and finds that these bounds are necessarily wide, due to the small.   This book is an attempt to explain the temporal movement of postwar Italian strikes: why and when strikes go up or down, and what the strategies of the main actors involved are. In many ways, the book is unique in the social sciences. First, it takes an inductive approach. Rather than start with theories and then use available empirical evidence to test the explanatory power of the theories.

Theoretical integration generally involves borrowing theoretical constructs from competing theories and combining them into a single theory. Integrating theories within criminology is particularly advantageous because it allows scholars to begin to understand the behavior under study in a more complex, and potentially more complete, manner.
