"The new Third Edition of this best-selling text guides students and researchers through the process of doing qualitative research, clearly explaining how different theoretical approaches inform what you do in practice. The text bridges the gap between "cookbook" and more abstract approaches to qualitative research, by posing 'difficult questions' that researchers should be asking themselves. The book invites researchers to engage in a creative and critical practice in how they draw insights, interpret a range of types of data, and craft knowledge from qualitative research. A theoretically engaged, grounded approach to qualitative researching, this remains the ideal text to guide students to become thoughtful, creative and effective qualitative researchers."--
