Overview

"Creswell does an excellent job categorizing the various qualitative methods into five approaches: narrative research, phenomenology, grounded theory, ethnography, and case study...The author has expanded on and updated the information he presented in the first edition of the book (Creswell, 1998), including discussion of the various schools of thought that have developed among qualitative researchers since the mid 1990's...Qualitative Inquiry & Research Design: Choosing among five approaches is a highly informative book; researchers will likely return again and against to the book as they expand their comfort zone within qualitative research."

Peggy M. Delmas, University of Alabama

Creswell has produced an even more outstanding and valuable text for qualitative research than the First Edition.”
Edith King, University of Denver

Like the bestselling First Edition, this new version explores the philosophical underpinnings, history, and key elements of each of five qualitative inquiry approaches: narrative research, phenomenology, grounded theory, ethnography, and case study. Using an accessible and engaging writing style, author John W. Creswell compares theoretical frameworks, ways to employ standards of quality, and strategies for writing introductions to studies, collecting data, analyzing data, writing a narrative, and verifying results.

Incl. five traditions of biography, phenomenological study, grounded theory study, ethnography, case study etc.

New Zealand Studies in Applied Linguistics - Gary Barkhuizen
"This introductory research text [...] covers five approaches to qualitative research and compares them side-by-side. [This book] covers the basics in qualitative research; content which can easily be adapted to suit the needs of budding applied linguistics researchers [as well]."
Carey E. Andrzejewski
“This text provides a wonderful introduction, using accessible language, to theories and practices related to the design and conduct of qualitative inquiry. Moreover, it remains a good first resource for students who want to pursue qualitative inquiry; that is, they can return to this text to review fundamental concepts and to find references to other resources about specific topics, approaches, and strategies.”
Nataliya V. Ivankova
“Students find Creswell’s books very “user friendly”. They like his writing style, clear ideas, and simple enough language. At the same time, the book presents in-depth information, but because this information is stated in clear simple terms, it makes it easier for the students to comprehend it without difficulty.”
Jeannine E. Klein
“A very welcome addition to doctoral courses and bookshelves!”
