Introducing students to the rationale behind qualitative research methods and providing guidance on how to carry out basic qualitative research, this text describes and illustrates six different approaches to qualitative research in psychology: grounded theory, interpretative phenomenology, case studies, discursive psychology, Foucauldian discourse analysis, and memory work. Each chapter introduces an approach along with its procedures and techniques for gathering and analyzing data, and explains each approach's advantages and disadvantages. Appendices provide three examples of work done by undergraduates. Distributed by Taylor & Francis. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
  • I first read this book (the first edition) when I was an MRes student in the UK. I now am a postdoc in the US and have returned to it many times as a guide for students conducting qualitative data analyses, and for teaching qualitative lectures. Not only does it explain claerly and simply what qualitataive research is (and different epistimologies behind different qualitative methods) but it also provides clear instructions on carrying out qualitative projects and analyses. I would highly reccommend this to anyone looking for an introduction to qualitative methods.

  • It helps to situate IPA in the area of qualitative research and also breaks down the paradigmatic components (the ontology, epistemology, etc.) of the approach.
