Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

This third edition of a best-seller features new material on the latest developments and directions in qualitative research--including such subjects as feminist methodology, postmodernism, phenomenology, and cultural anthropology. New sections on evaluation research will make the book attractive for professionals in education, nursing, social work, and gerontology, as well as those in psychology.

From the Inside Flap

Over the two decades since the publication of the first edition of Introduction to Qualitative Research Methods, qualitative research has risen from a novel and controversial approach to the study of social issues to a widely practiced method for understanding how people view themselves and the world around them. New journals, university courses, handbooks, and encyclopedias are now devoted to the study and practice of qualitative research, but there is still only one comprehensive, practical guide to the collection and presentation of qualitative data. Introduction to Qualitative Research Methods, Third Edition is a completely up-to-date guide to qualitative study design, data collection, analysis, and reporting. The first part of the book surveys a range of methods for collecting qualitative data, focusing on how these techniques are applied when conducting an actual study. Separate chapters are devoted to participant observation (both pre-fieldwork and in the field), in-depth interviewing, creative new approaches such as postmodern ethnography and personal document analysis, and data analysis. The second half of the book, which covers the writing and publication of qualitative studies, clearly demonstrates how qualitative methods are used in actual practice. Comprehensive and jargon-free, Introduction to Qualitative Research Methods, Third Edition:
  • Reviews current theoretical developments in feminist research and postmodernism
  • Includes examples of studies conducted in educational, human services, disability services, and health care settings
  • Surveys the full range of qualitative methods and reviews the research process from design through data collection, analysis, and writing
  • Provides an extensive bibliography and an appendix containing participant observation field notes
Comprehensive, practical, and brimming with new material, Introduction to Qualitative Research Methods, Third Edition is an ideal text for graduate and upper-level undergraduate courses across a broad range of social science disciplines. It is also an excellent guidebook and resource for practicing social scientists.
