Using Narrative in Research by Christine Bold provides an accessible, easy-to-understand guide to the theory and practice of the use of narrative in research. Written with those new to narrative in mind, this book will enable readers to understand the origins of narrative traditions and to plan and carry out a narrative study of their own. Christine Bold's book examines narrative approaches across a range of research contexts and disciplinary boundaries and will be of equal value to practitioners and academic students and researchers alike. Drawing on a range of real-life examples of narrative studies, Using Narrative in Research will enable readers to provide a sound justification for adopting a narrative-based approach and will help them to write about and write up narrative in research. This book examines: * How we design research projects with a narrative approach * Ethics * Narrative thinking * Collecting narrative data * Analysing narrative data * Representation in narrative analysis * Reporting and writing up narrative research.

Reviews

My experience of getting politicians to heed research findings taught me the power of the killer statistic and the good anecdote. So a book that seemingly would explain the latter - albeit dressed up as 'narrative' - had an appeal. But Bold here offers more than that...And it must be admitted that most of her own experience, and the examples she uses to support her argument, relate to research on professional practice and/or by practitioners...That makes the book all the more relevant to social research.
