The SAGE Handbook of Qualitative Research (Sage Handbooks), 4th Edition

Presenting the state-of-the-art for the theory and practice of qualitative inquiry, this landmark Handbook has been a publishing phenomenon in the human sciences since it first published in 1994. As with earlier editions, the Fourth Edition is virtually a new volume. Representing the best thinking from top scholars from around the world, the new edition continues the book’s tradition of synthesizing an existing literature, defining the present, and shaping the future of qualitative research. The editors and contributors address issues of social justice and examine how people’s struggles can inform public issues and in turn be transformed into social policy. Their writings are underpinned by a critical framework, and they are committed to addressing issues of inequality. As with previous editions, their aim is to show how the practices of qualitative research can effect change in the world in positive ways.

Review

“Like previous editions, this offers the most comprehensive analysis in a single volume of the theories, techniques, and foundational thought underpinning qualitative inquiry…. Highly recommended.” (CHOICE)
Since its first edition, the SAGE Handbook of Qualitative Research has been a vital and indispensable resource for qualitative researchers and practitioners in a variety of academic disciplines.(Gust A. Yep)
An absolute must for seasoned as well as novice qualitative researchers. It is THE reference book to have on hand; no methodologist, both qualitative or quantitative should be without in his/her library.(Marc Spooner)
