Once again, editors Norman K. Denzin and Yvonna S Lincoln have put together a volume that represents the state of the art for the theory and practice of qualitative inquiry. Built on the foundation of the landmark first and second editions, the third edition is both the bridge and the roadmap to the territory that lies ahead for researchers across the disciplines. The Fourth Edition is a virtually new work. It features new chapter topics, including, among others, auto-ethnography, critical race theory, applied ethnography, queer theory, and testimonies. Several additional chapters are written by new contributors. And, every chapter in the book has been thoroughly revised and updated. At the beginning of the twenty-first century, it is necessary to re-engage the promise of qualitative research as a generative form of inquiry. The Fourth Edition of the Handbook reveals how the discourses of qualitative research can be used to imagine and create a free and democratic society. Ground-breaking, thought-provoking, comprehensive, and featuring the contributions of a virtual "Who's Who" in the human sciences, the Handbook of Qualitative Research, Third Edition is an absolutely essential text for the library of any scholar interested in the art and science of research.
