"This book is unique in its focus on how mixed methods may be utilized from various qualitative paradigms, including interpretative, feminist, and postmodern approaches. It is loaded with case examples and is written clearly for a graduate student audience. The treatment of ethics in mixed methods work is commendable."--Kai A. Schafft, PhD, Department of Education Policy Studies, Penn State University
"For both students and practicing researchers alike, [this book] will be an invaluable resource across a range of disciplines. Through its emphasis on the centrality of the relationship between theoretical perspective and research design, the book guides the reader into thinking reflexively about the theoretical perspective in which research questions are grounded as well as the researcher’s axiological standpoint, to ensure that they consider the impact these factors have on the knowledge produced by research. Through the presentation of three different theoretical positions: feminist, interactionist and post-modernist, and with the assistance of glossaries, worked examples, discussion points and suggested resources, Hesse-Biber presents complex theoretical ideas in a manner accessible to those new to mixed methods research as well as more experienced researchers wishing to explore qualitative approaches to mixed methods research. Arguably the biggest triumph of this book is its centering of qualitative approaches to mixed methods research in a field largely dominated by quantitative approaches. The first mixed methods book dedicated solely to the presentation of qualitative perspectives, it challenges not only qualitative researchers to consider the possibilities suggested by a mixed methods design, but also those undertaking mixed methods research from a primarily quantitative perspective to consider what a qualitative vantage point might offer research design. Overall, this book is comprehensive, readable, and importantly, challenging, to the field of mixed methods research where a systematic presentation of qualitative approaches has long been lacking."--Felicity Boardman, PhD, Research Fellow in Mixed Methods Research, Warwick Medical School, United Kingdom
