"This is a book I can use to improve my research, to help students put their inquiries in perspective relative to their own working theories while considering other relevant theories, and to support my critical reading and interpretation of the work of other inquirers."
--David D. Williams,  Brigham Young University

In Theoretical Frameworks in Qualitative Research, the authors provide extensive and practical coverage of theory and its role in qualitative research, a review of the literature that currently exists on theoretical frameworks, a clear and concise definition of what a theoretical framework is and how one goes about finding one, and real-world examples of theoretical frameworks effectively employed by some of the world's leading qualitative researchers. The book will be invaluable to students and researchers who want to find detailed examples of their design options and who are still working through the various frameworks they could employ. The interdisciplinary nature of the framework examples used in the book (economics, politics, social theory, etc.) will also assist students in linking their own specific research questions to larger inquiry projects.

Key Features:

  • Comprehensive coverage of the role of theory in qualitative research
  • Presentation of a wide variety of distinctive, sometimes unusual theoretical frameworks drawn from a number of disciplines
  • Real-world examples detailed and explained by some of today's leading qualitative researchers
  • Guidance for students on how to integrate the complexities of their frameworks into a solid research design
