In Discovering Qualitative Methods, Third Edition, researchers Carol A. B. Warren and Tracy Xavia Karner emphasize the process of social research--from the initial idea to the final paper, journal article, or scholarly monograph. Establishing the theoretical underpinnings and applications of qualitative research, the authors offer comprehensive yet straightforward coverage that includes the major types of qualitative analysis: field research or ethnography, interviews, documents, and images. They also discuss the historical background and evolution of research practices, in turn teaching students how to generate and develop their own rigorous practices. A thorough, versatile text, Discovering Qualitative Methods, Third Edition, is ideal for undergraduate and graduate courses in qualitative methods and general research methods. It is also appropriate for qualitative methods courses in other social science disciplines including anthropology, business, communications, education, journalism, and social work.
Carol A. B. Warren is Professor Emerita of Sociology at the University of Kansas.
Tracy Xavia Karner is Associate Professor of Sociology at the University of Houston.
