This book has been written for students but would be of value to anyone considering using the analysis method to help them reduce and make sense of a large volume of textual data. [...]The content is detailed and presented in text-book style with key points, definitions and beginners’ mistakes scattered throughout and frequently asked questions and end of chapter questions. These break up the text but also help when skimming. In addition, and what I found particularly valuable, was the liberal use of examples drawn from published papers.
This book provides a well written, clear and detailed account of QCA, highlighting the value of this research method for the analysis of social, political and psychological phenomenaTereza CapelosUniversity of Surrey
Schreier provides several helpful educational tools, such as mid-chapter definitions, summaries and key-points....this is an excellent introductory or reference book for all students of content analysis
This book makes a valuable supplementary reading text about applied content analysis for my course in ethnography.
I will use this as a recommended text, and not adopt as a main or compulsory text. This is so given the book's particular focus on QCA, and the more complex treatment of research issues in general, which will be of use to a limited number of students but will be a good resource potentially for some select few taking my spring 2014 senior thesis class and NOT the fall basic / intro research methods class. Thank you.
