Overview

The Second Edition of this bestselling text offers students and first-time researchers invaluable guidance to the practice of qualitative social research.

Throughout the author addresses the key issues which need to be identified and resolved in the qualitative research process, and through which researchers develop essential skills in qualitative research. The book highlights thèdifficult questions' that researchers should get into the habit of asking themselves in the course of doing qualitative research, and outlines the implications of the different ways of responding to these questions.

Qualitative Researching bridges the gap between 'cook-book' approaches to qualitative research and abstract methodological approaches. Helping the reader to move comfortably between principle and practice, this text has proved to be an invaluable introduction to qualitative research, and a useful aid to accomplished qualitative research practice across the social sciences.

Discusses planning & designing research, using interviewing, sampling & selecting, organizing data, analysis, etc.
