  • This highly-popular text provides useful and pragmatic guidance for developing successful proposals for qualitative inquiry. Written primarily for applied researchers, the book offers practical advice on designing qualitative research, given the complexity, the flexibility, and the controversies of its many genres. The book's focus is on the proposal stage of research. However, the book takes the reader far enough to have a clear plan for data analysis and for the challenging varieties of final reports of qualitative inquiries. The Sixth Edition offers some new vignettes to illustrate the methodological challenges posed by the intellectual, ethical, political, and technological advances affecting qualitative research design. It also extends and deepens the discussion in the previous edition about strategies for incorporating into qualitative methodology the challenges posed by postmodernists, feminists, critical race theorists, and those who demand that research be directly useful to the researched.
