This is a well written and easily accessible guide to research methods for Undergraduates. The chapter on Participant Observation is particularly good.
It provides a good overview of the Topic. I highly recommend this book to my students, especially if they want to work with qualitative methods in their master theses.
I decided to use a different Sage book for this course:
Qualitative Inquiry and Research Design Choosing Among Five Approaches Third Edition
A comprehensive text on the various forms of qualitative field research - an invaluable text for any field researcher. The book covers the different epistemological positions at the base of research before moving into the specific methods themselves. The book details aspects of observations, interviews, coding, storytelling, visual representations and ethics, among others. A highly valued resource that will be of particular use to my final year students for their dissertations.
A fantastic and accessible look at the qualitative field research process.
Understandable, accessible, concise and clear overview of what it means to conduct qualitative field research.
price and content are excellent for undergraduate course
