Over the past few decades, qualitative research in management and business has expanded rapidly. Business and management is set to become - if it is not already - the dominant field within the domain of qualitative research. It is therefore vital that students and scholars are well-informed about exemplary contributions to, methods employed by, and issues, challenges, debates faced by qualitative researchers in this field. This four-volume collection is designed to provide a set of authoritative sources capable of facilitating the development of knowledge and understanding. The collection provides an Introduction written by the editors, which contextualises and guides readers through the selection.
Volume One: Classical and Contemporary Studies
Volume Two: Methods, Approaches, Techniques: Guides and Exemplars
Volume Three: Practices and Preoccupations
Volume Four: Challenges and Prospects

Emma Bell is Professor of Organisation Studies at the Open University Business School, UK. Emma’s research focuses on the ways in which people collectively construct meaning through work. Key themes include: change and organizational loss, embodiment and media representations of management, spirituality and belief in organizations, and craft work businesses. Her approach to understanding these issues draws on insights from the social sciences and humanities, and involves critical, interpretive analysis of mainly qualitative data. She also writes about methods and methodologies in management research.
Enlightening, provocative, argumentative, and formidably perceptive, this collection conveys the richness and complexity of organizational life while also holding the keys to its amelioration. While qualitative research studies in organization and management may still be outnumbered by their quantitative counterparts, we can see here how and why they hold the upper hand in transforming theory and practice.(Robin Stanley Snell 2014-11-03)
Emma Bell and Hugh Willmott have put together four volumes of historically rich, analytically inclusive and vivid accounts of carrying out qualitative research in business and management settings. The volumes take readers through canonical, classic works to significant contemporary developments – in both theory and method – reflecting the changing organizational contexts in which current research is set. The editors provide a thoughtful introduction and guide to the materials. This is without doubt the most comprehensive and broad treatment of qualitative research I have ever encountered. It will have a long shelf life, deservedly so.(John Van Maanen 2014-11-05)
