Building on the global success of the first edition of Qualitative Research: Theory, Method and Practice, the new edition has been thoroughly updated and revised. It succeeds in providing a comprehensive yet accessible guide to a variety of methodological approaches to qualitative research.
Edited by David Silverman, the book brings together a team of internationally renowned researchers to discuss the theory and practice of qualitative research. In each chapter, the contributors broaden our conception of qualitative research by drawing upon particular examples of data-analysis to advance their analytical arguments.
The contributors successfully combine a discussion of more traditional methods, with more recent developments in the field; including the use of internet data and researching visual culture.
Illustrated by case studies and practical examples, this student-friendly and engaging text will be an invaluable resource for all students involved in qualitative research across the social sciences.About the Author:
