This innovative Handbook draws together and reflects on the specific methodological challenges that an international business scholar is likely to face when undertaking a qualitative research project.

Covering the entire life cycle of a research project from its philosophical underpinnings to publication hurdles, the book explores existing practices and gives voice to multiple, even contrasting perspectives. This invaluable source of experiential knowledge, as well as conceptual understanding, has been achieved by a truly international authorship. Including fascinating vignettes written by senior academics, the result is a guide that will be indispensable. Capturing the experiences and practices of qualitative researchers, the Handbook of Qualitative Research Methods for International Business should be on the bookshelves of students and scholars of IB, researchers in international management and marketing, and teachers of cross-cultural and IB research methods.

Review:

`This book is recommended for academic libraries supporting international business research, international business scholars involved in qualitative research projects, and international organizations with a need to conduct or understand qualitative business research.' -- Denise J. Johnson, Business Information Alert `This Handbook provides a comprehensive guide portraying the variety and complexity of qualitative research methods in international business (IB). The editors, Marschan-Piekkari and Welch, have ambitiously interwoven assorted methodological viewpoints, experiences, and recommendations in a wide-ranging compendium spanning twenty-eight chapters in six sections. Nine vignettes interspersed throughout the text offer distinctive personal accounts that are as enjoyable as they are informative. The total massive and admirable undertaking arrays the perspectives of fifty-four perceptive and self-reflective researchers representing diversity in `Suffice to say that all researchers (be them familiar or not with qualitative research) and doctoral students in the field will find this Handbook insightful if not essential. Challenging ideas are put forward, useful tips and models discussed in detail, not to mention the numerous practical advice ranging from the theoretical underpinning of the research undertaken to personal experiences in unfamiliar places in the world.' -- Axele Giroud, International Business Review `The Handbook of Qualitative Research Methods for International Business provides an excellent resource for IB researchers. It combines practical advice and theoretical discussion, addressing and exploring many of the issues that challenge scholars who undertake qualitative research and summarizing trends and debates in the field. As a Handbook, it would be of special interest to doctoral students starting out on their research careers but it would also be a valuable source for reference by academics who are more established in the field of IB.' -- Anna Soulsby, Journal of International Business Studies `This is a volume which will be immensely helpful to younger scholars working on IB related topics. It contains valuable insights on a whole range of qualitative research techniques written by experienced practitioners. I commend it unreservedly. It deserves the widest possible circulation.' -- John H. Dunning, University of Reading, UK and Rutgers University, US `This edited book on qualitative research methods in international business is probably the most comprehensive of all in its genre. Contributors to this volume are seasoned researchers who share not only difficulties and hidden pitfalls in qualitative research but also the joy of gaining richer - sometimes unexpected - insights into cultural and managerial issues transcending national boundaries than traditional quantitative research would uncover. It is a must read for all researchers in international business research.' -- Masaaki Kotabe, Temple University, US `The editors and authors are to be commended for an engaging, useful and thought provoking end product which will be read with pleasure (and I hope will provoke some anger too) and will be a useful guidebook. It is my hope that this book will stimulate more, and better research in the international business field.' -- From the foreword by Peter J. Buckley, OBE, University of Leeds, UK `This is an excellent book on an important topic, namely how to conduct qualitative research in international business. It is a great collection of thoughtful chapters written by scholars that have themselves struggled with all the problems in conducting qualitative research. The book is obviously filling a gap in the literature on methodology in international business and it is a must for Ph.d. students and other researchers considering conducting qualitative research. The book deserves to be widely read and carefully studied.' -- Torben Pedersen, Copenhagen Business School, Denmark `A significant and timely addition to the literature on qualitative research methods in international business. The volume contains a wide yet integrated range of contributions from well-known authors. The book will be of major value to qualitative researchers because of its approach which is both academic and experience-based; and its coverage which includes important but frequently ignored topics such as "Researching outside the Triad", as well as contributions on case study research, interviewing, alternative methodologies and getting published.' -- Stephen Young, University of Strathclyde, UK
