This lively, practical text presents a fresh and comprehensive approach to doing qualitative research. The book offers a unique balance of theory and clear-cut choices for customizing every phase of a qualitative study. A scholarly mix of classic and contemporary studies from multiple disciplines provides compelling, field-based examples of the full range of qualitative approaches. Readers learn about adaptive ways of designing studies, collecting data, analyzing data, and reporting findings. Key aspects of the researcher's craft are addressed, such as fieldwork options, the five phases of data analysis (with and without using computer-based software), and how to incorporate the researcher's “declarative” and “reflective” selves into a final report. Ideal for graduate-level courses, the text includes:* Discussions of ethnography, grounded theory, phenomenology, feminist research, and other approaches.* Instructions for creating a study bank to get a new study started.* End-of-chapter exercises and a semester-long, field-based project.* Quick study boxes, research vignettes, sample studies, and a glossary.* Previews for sections within chapters, and chapter recaps.* Discussion of the place of qualitative research among other social science methods, including mixed methods research.

Review:

"Yin should be commended for connecting readers to the discipline and joy of doing qualitative research. This book makes qualitative methods accessible to a broad audience. It includes practical advice and connects new researchers with well-chosen examples from a diverse array of rigorous qualitative studies. The discussion of the analysis process is a major strength of the book." - Michelle C. Bligh, School of Behavioral and Organizational Sciences, Claremont Graduate University, USA

"This book is both practical and scholarly. I like Yin's conceptualization of the five features of qualitative research. I also appreciate the lack of jargon and the use of concrete examples. I will recommend this book to colleagues as a practical guide and will consider using it as a class text." - Lance D. Fusarelli, Department of Leadership, Policy, and Adult and Higher Education, North Carolina State University, USA
