This Fourth Edition of Thomas A. Schwandt’s one-of-a-kind guide to the terms and phrases that help shape the origins, purpose, logic, meaning, and methods of the practices known as qualitative inquiry features 20 additional terms as well as a restructured Reader’s Guide. Key references have been updated and select terms and phrases from previous editions have been reorganized and greatly expanded. Together, the dictionary entries provide a guide to the methodological and epistemological concepts and theoretical orientations of qualitative inquiry. This unique resource is ideal for readers who are navigating various perspectives on qualitative inquiry, working on a qualitative dissertation, or are launching their own investigations into the issues covered.
This text is most helpful for all of my ECE 798/799 Dissertation (PhD in ECE) candidates in writing and explaining their work in accurate term. It is the only text of its kind.
Qualitative Methods are new for our Level 5 students. The new terminology often leaves them lost. This book is an ideal reference to supplement their research and learning.
