Sari Knopp Biklen, Robert Bogdan
This concise, applied, and very clearly written introduction to qualitative research methods can be used effectively in a semester, or year-long course. This introductory-level text provides the reader with a background for understanding the uses of qualitative research in education (and other professions) examining its theoretical and historical underpinnings, and providing the â€œhow-to'sâ€ of doing qualitative research. This new edition places qualitative research within current debates about research methods and alternative ways of knowing. While the authors approach the subject from a sociological perspective, they also take care to reflect the many changes in conceptualization of qualitative research brought by post-structural and feminist thought. New to This Edition: Rewritten Chapter 5, â€œData Analysis,â€ places more emphasis on the interpretive aspect of research and research writing. Expanded coverage of action or practitioner research (Chapter 7) highlights a topic that is of immediate use. Added emphasis on technology and qualitative analysis software in qualitative research helps students to use and incorporate technology efficiently. Links to useful research websites have also been integrated throughout. Expanded coverage of such topics as formal research designs, work with different cultures, critical race theory, and the debate over quantitative vs. qualitative research. New end-of-chapter summaries, questions, and field assignments have been added to make this text easy to use with students.Sari Knopp Biklen is the author of 'Qualitative Research for Education: An Introduction to Theories and Methods, Fifth Edition', published 2006 under ISBN 9780205482931 and ISBN 0205482937.
