Abstract:

"Intended as a guide to the terms and phrases that partially shape the nature, purpose, logic, meaning, and methods of the practices called qualitative inquiry, this new edition has 110 additional new terms as well as new key references for every entry. These key references help acquaint readers with the complexity of the issues behind the concepts examined in the book. In addition, most of the entries have been expanded and clarified to enhance readers' comprehension of the concepts. Taken in their entirety, the entries are less a technical guide to qualitative methods and more of a guide to concepts and theoretical orientations in qualitative studies. Students and researchers will find this book useful for navigating the various streams of qualitative studies and as a starting point for launching their own investigations into methodological issues."--Jacket.
