The Second Edition of Qualitative Methods in Social Work Research provides accessible how-to instruction for social work and other practice-based researchers interested in carrying out rigorous and relevant qualitative research. This comprehensive, expanded version offers a sophisticated introduction to qualitative methods based upon six major approaches: ethnography, grounded theory, case study, narrative, phenomenological, and participatory action research. Similar to the earlier edition, this Second Edition is a highly readable introduction to qualitative research that combines attention to methodological rigor with pragmatic concerns for real-world relevance.

This book is a must for any social worker interested in qualitative research. With a style that it is exceptionally easy to read, it provides all the basics around theory, the practical "how-to′s", cautions/pitfalls and as well as plentiful examples to illustrate the concepts presented. It also provides information about additional readings and resources for an area you want to delve further. It will answer many, if not all, the questions you have about qualitative research. The book will make you excited about qualitative methods, and is so interesting and enjoyable to read, that I read it cover to cover in less than a week. I could barely put it down! There aren′t a whole lot of other research books that can make that claim! Author: Donna S. Wang Published On: 2011-06-10
