It gives a good classification of the different types of qualitative analysis so readers can have a full pictures of what they are all about of their past, present, and future, the merits, deficiencies, and functions of each type of qualitative analysis.
It is definitely a very valuable book especially when this field is growing so fast that people will easily get lost of what they are all about. The book is value for money. It is worth to own a copy as the binding is in hardcover that make it more durable even under frequency reading or reference searching.
At first, I hesitate whether to bought it or not fearing that it will soon be outdated and no bookshelf space to put. However, after detail reading of the various articles, I find that majority of them have values that can stand against the test of time. If these articles have to be taken out due to new ideas coming out in the future version, I think readers still have to refer to them otherwise their understanding to this field will be incomplete.
I think if you read all the articles in it. It will benefit you for life in all kind of professions. Patrick from Hong Kong.
The Sage books are usually wonderful, especially for students, but this book contained articles that were not useful to me.
Our class downloadd it then changed books because even the instructor disliked it.
If you have to download it for a class, you have to download it, but I would not recommend it otherwise. I hope SAGE re-publishes the 3rd edition. The 4th edition is such a disappointment. I used the 3rd edition as a prescribed text in a research methods course that I teach. I was compelled by university requirements to replace the 3rd edition with the 4th edition. I removed the 4th edn as the prescribed text as soon as possible, i. Kindle Edition Verified download. Don't download it unless you have an earlier edition because the authors frequently refer to the prior edition.
Not for beginners. It is written to impress other scholars of qualitative inquiry. Outstanding resource for doing qualitative research. The 4th edition of this essential publication should provide plenty to debate in relation to the complex space of "qualitative research".
This publication provides a wealth of resources, philosophies, methods, and perspectives. A wonderful companion for those on their own research journeys. See all 22 reviews. There's a problem loading this menu right now.

If so, The Handbook shows a lack of awareness of Asian schol- interpretive interactionism may run counter to the goal of arship. Even after careful reading, inexperienced works of well-known Asian scholars, such as Yang Kuo researchers would still be at a loss on how to conduct Shu, Virgilio Enriquez, Uichol Kim, Durganand Sinha, and postmodern interviewing. This raises the question of disingenuousness among contributors to the Handbook who proclaim their opposi- Poor quality of writing tion to Euro-American hegemony and solidarity with the developing world.
Asian social psychologists, besides Unfortunately, we find little evidence that the latest edition being put off by its Eurocentrism, would find the volume has benefited from these criticisms.
To these we must add mostly irrelevant to their interests. The book is far too big: Many chapters may be reduced in length, say, by half, without loss of substance; citations of tangential relevance should be eliminated. The Antiscience and antireason quality of writing leaves much to be desired.
