In this Third Edition of his bestselling text John W. Creswell explores the philosophical underpinnings, history, and key elements of each of five qualitative inquiry traditions: narrative research, phenomenology, grounded theory, ethnography, and case study. In his signature accessible writing style, the author relates research designs to each of the traditions of inquiry. He compares theoretical frameworks, ways to employ standards of quality, and strategies for writing introductions to studies, collecting data, analyzing data, writing a narrative, and verifying results.

Review:

"I've never found one I like better!"--Trudy Salsberry

"Clean and comprehensive. Easy for students to follow."--David R. Osborn

This text provides a wonderful introduction, using accessible language, to theories and practices related to the design and conduct of qualitative inquiry. Moreover, it remains a good first resource for students who want to pursue qualitative inquiry; that is, they can return to this text to review fundamental concepts and to find references to other resources about specific topics, approaches, and strategies. --Carey E. Andrzejewski (10/28/2011)"

Students find Creswell s books very user friendly . They like his writing style, clear ideas, and simple enough language. At the same time, the book presents in-depth information, but because this information is stated in clear simple terms, it makes it easier for the students to comprehend it without difficulty. --Nataliya V. Ivankova (10/28/2011)"

A very welcome addition to doctoral courses and bookshelves! --Jeannine E. Klein (10/28/2011)"
