This four-volume major work collates and contextualises key papers on the use of case study in education. The collection brings together methodological publications and publications which provide exemplars of case study. The methodological material provides both critical analyses of case study and those which champion its use, offering at the same time a chronological map of the development of case study from its earliest uses to today. Framed by an introductory passage in each volume which seeks to provide a synopsis of the methodological discussion and a commentary on the exemplary material, this set provides for serious students in education original source material to appraise the method together with exemplary sample material to help them plan and organize their case studies. Volume One: Methodological issues around the use of case studies in social science Volume Two: Methodological issues around the use of case studies in education Volume Three: The case study in practice - general issues and specific examples Volume Four: Examples of case studies in education
