Maxwell, Joseph Alex: Qualitative Research Design, An
Interactive Approach,2nd ed, sage,[London],2005,174p.
This book gives researchers and students a user-friendly, step-
by-step guide to planning qualitative research. Based on a
course that the author taught for 7 years at the Harvard
Graduate School of Education, it is written in an informal,
jargon-free style and incorporates many examples and hands-
on exercises. Rather than the rigid, linear approach to design
usually found in research methods textbooks, which is
particularly unsuited to qualitative research, the book presents
a flexible, systemic model of design. This model not only
better fits what experienced qualitative researchers actually
do, but provides a clear framework for designing a study and
developing a research proposal. This edition includes new or
substantially expanded discussions of research paradigms,
defining a research problem, site and participant selection,
relationships with research participants, data analysis, and
validity, as well as more examples and exercises.
