Qualitative Research in Action by Tim May

Book Description

'This delightful book will be important to those researchers eager to extend their knowledge of qualitative research generally but specifically those keen to extend their research practice from a social-science perspective' - Nurse Researcher 'This is an excellent collection at the cutting edge of thinking about qualitative research...The breadth of coverage and the sophistication of the discussion make this an important addition to the increasing literature on qualitative work' - Jonathan Potter, Loughborough University 'This book is likely to have a broad appeal to a rising generation of qualitative researchers seeking to relate theoretical debates to methodological practice' - Clive Seale, Goldsmiths College This exciting new book brings together contributions from world-leading scholars as well as younger researchers and focuses on cutting-edge issues related to the practice of qualitative research in the field. It provides a forum for contributors to discuss the issues and processes which inform qualitative research in its various forms as based on fieldwork experiences.In achieving this in an accessible manner to both practising students and researchers, it seeks to enable a dialogue over ideas and provide the reader with a 'state of the art' overview of the topic from a contemporary perspective. Rather than being a 'how to do' book, this volume should prove vitally useful for advanced students and researchers who wish to engage with those ideas and practices in terms of their applicability for an understanding and explanation of the place of qualitative research in the social sciences. It is also a forum in which leading scholars make an original contribution to the subject. Lively and highly readable throughout, Qualitative Research in Action will be essential reading for advanced undergraduates and above in a variety of disciplines, as well as researchers who wish to engage with contemporary ideas and practices in relation to qualitative research.
