Book Description'The book is an extremely valuable resource for students and new researchers who embark on qualitative research in sociology and the social sciences.

It provides an introductory survey of the methodological and theoretical dimensions of qualitative research as practised by those interested in the study of social life.

Practically focused throughout, the book also offers constructive advice for students analysing and writing their research projects. Key features of the book include: * An innovative framework - combining different methodologies and approaches.* A variety of 'real-life' examples and case studies - enriches the book for the reader * A set of practical exercises in each chapter - pedagogical and student-focussed throughout. * International in focus - offers a wide-ranging set of approaches and debates * A broad coverage - includes discussions of ethnography, visual analysis, ethical issues, discourse and conversation analysis and report-writing The book has a flowing narrative and student-friendly structure which makes it accessible to and popular with students. It will be an invaluable resource for students and researchers, helping them to undertake effective qualitative research in both sociology and courses in social research across the social sciences.
