9781446282656: How to Do Your Case Study

Vibrant and insightful, this book introduces students and researchers to the basics of case study research. Adopting jargon-free language, it grounds its advice in concrete experience and real-world cases. Using examples from across the social sciences, Gary Thomas provides practical guidance on how best to read, design and carry out case study research with a focus on how to manage and analyze data.

The new edition of this bestselling book addresses crucial issues around ethics and has improved coverage of key themes such as rigor, validity, generalization and the analysis of case studies. It demystifies case study research and answers important questions such as:

  • What is a case study?
  • When and why should case study methods be used?
  • How are case studies designed?
  • What methods can be used?
  • How do we analyze and make sense of our data?
  • How do we write up and write about our case?

Bursting with real-world examples and multidisciplinary cases, and supported by a dynamic new website, this book is essential reading for any student or researcher in the social sciences and humanities.

Review:

I would encourage all my students to make reference to this excellent resource. It provides a thorough, well explained foundation to case study research which will equip the reader to design and carry out their own projects. Thomas includes examples from across a number of disciplines, illustrating how to apply the theory to practice and presenting a clear discussion of how to effectively prepare, conduct, analyse and report research.

(Ruth Hewston)

This book continues to be our first recommendation for all our undergraduate education programmes due to the clarity of its prose, its wonderfully clear structure and the use of excellent examples to illustrate key points. This new edition includes expanded discussions and a very welcome new chapter on research ethics.

(James Percival)
