Publisher Comments:

Offering practical answers to complex questions in qualitative research design

Providing students in applied social and behavioral science disciplines with invaluable guidance on developing and successfully defending qualitative research proposals, the Fifth Edition of this bestselling text offers expanded coverage of ethics, data analysis, and research design techniques. Authors Catherine Marshall and Gretchen B. Rossman cover distance-based research (such as email interviews); the implications of postmodern turns; integrating archival material; and creative ways of presenting the research. The authors include updates to popular features, such as vignettes that illustrate the methodological challenges today's qualitative researcher face.

New to this EditionAn entire chapter devoted to ethical issues (as well as continuous coverage throughout the book) Expanded discussions of internet ethnography, cultural studies, critical race theory, and queer theory A greatly enhanced chapter on data analysis

This book is appropriate for all graduate-level Introduction to Qualitative Methods courses in education, nursing, sociology, human services, and other related fields.

Book News Annotation:

Marshall (educational leadership, U. of North Carolina-Chapel Hill) and Rossman (international education, U. of Massachusetts-Amherst) have made substantial revisions for this edition, reflecting not only the maturing of qualitative research, but also its broader acceptance in academia and the accompanying standards and tests it must now satisfy. They explain that the first edition (no date noted) introduced an approach to social and behavioral sciences that was considered little, if at all, more respectable than palm reading. Among their topics are qualitative research genres; trustworthiness and ethics; building the conceptual framework; building the research design; primary data collection methods; secondary and specialized methods; managing, analyzing, and interpreting data; planning time and resource; and revisiting the proposal as argument and forecasting final representations.
