"Even though some of the material is extremely sophisticated, the text is accessible. The guidance for navigating the difficulties of writing and publishing qualitative research is particularly helpful and unique for a methods book." - Childhood Education "Timely and up-to-date, this is a major new work in this area. Wonderfully written, solid scholarship." - Norman K. Denzin, coeditor of Handbook of Qualitative Research, Second Edition and The Qualitative Inquiry Reader "An excellent book. It is highly accessible, even though some of the material is extremely sophisticated; it is comprehensive, and its use of examples gives a very real, practical sense of the issues. The author has taken advantage of the fact that qualitative research is at a watershed period. He has read everything, and created a synthesis which others might have attempted, but have not done well, if at all. I predict that this book will become the standard in the field of education." - Yvonna S. Lincoln, coeditor of Handbook of Qualitative Research, Second Edition and The Qualitative Inquiry Reader
