The Craft of Qualitative Research

A Handbook

By Steven W. Kleinknecht, Lisa-Jo K. van den Scott, Carrie B. Sanders

Description

An edited collection packed with advice, exercises, and anecdotes, The Craft of Qualitative Research is a practical, introductory guide that will develop students’ skills and confidence in qualitative research. Accessible in style and tone, this text equips students with the tools needed to manage and overcome challenges, emotions, biases, and power dynamics in the field. To encourage experiential learning, 45 concise chapters include real-world examples and practical exercises from scholars and professionals in varying disciplines and stages of career.

Each section begins with an editors’ introduction then takes readers through the steps of successful qualitative research: from planning projects ethically and entering the field, to collecting and analyzing data, and lastly, to exiting the field and disseminating findings. Students in research-reliant disciplines, particularly sociology, anthropology, criminology, social work, and health studies, will benefit from this distinctly practical resource.
