Focusing on the integral role of the researcher, Qualitative Research for the Social Sciences uses a conversational writing style that draws readers into the excitement of the research process. Marilyn Lichtman offers a balanced and nuanced approach, covering the full range of qualitative methodologies and viewpoints about the field, including coverage of social media as a tool to facilitate research or as a venue for study. After presenting theoretical concepts and a historical overview, Lichtman guides readers, step by step, through the research process, addressing issues of analyzing data, presenting completed research, and evaluating research. Real-world examples from across the social sciences provide both practical and theoretical information, helping readers understand abstract ideas and apply them to their own research.

Review:

"I am likely to adopt this text.  I think it will be a fresh alternative and/or supplement to the text I now read and require for the course." (Lillie M. Fears)

"I really like the proposed textbook. Based on the prospectus and the outline I would very likely adopt the textbook for the next methods course." (Gesine Hearn)

"I will adopt the book for both classroom and online teaching." (Kebba Darboe)

"This book is a contribution to Qualitative Research. The content is similar to other texts, the writing and approach to delivery of QR is a bit different. The chapter on Social Media is a departure and makes the text attractive..." (Warren Hope)

"I would be likely to adopt this text as it is more undergraduate friendly than other texts in the field." (Helen Potts University Of North Texas–Denton)
