Building on the global success of the first edition of Qualitative Research: Theory, Method and Practice, the new edition has been thoroughly updated and revised. It succeeds in providing a comprehensive yet accessible guide to a variety of methodological approaches to qualitative research. Edited by David Silverman, the book brings together a team of internationally-renowned researchers to discuss the theory and practice of qualitative research. In each chapter, the contributors broaden our conception of qualitative research by drawing upon particular examples of data-analysis to advance their analytical arguments. The contributors successfully combine a discussion of more traditional methods, with more recent developments in the field; including the use of internet data and researching visual culture. Illustrated by case studies and practical examples, this student-friendly and engaging text will be an invaluable resource for all students involved in qualitative research across the social sciences.
