'Drawing on a wide range of their own and others' experiences, the authors offer a comprehensive and convincing account of the value of case study in educational research. What comes across - quite passionately - is the way in which a case study approach can bring to life some of the complexities, challenges and contradictions inherent in educational settings. The book is written in a clear and lively manner and should be an invaluable resource for those teachers and students who are incorporating a case study dimension into their research work'
This publication provides easy text, giving differing viewpoints to establish definitions for case study research. This book has been recommended to the Fd students to support projects of action research.

good and adopted
This is a must read for anyone considering case study as a methodology for educational research. The conversational style adds authenticity to the content which draws the reader in to what are at times, complex issues. The book is helpfully constructed with 5 sections containing 13 chapters. This strategy helps the reader to purposefully navigate the design, process and dissemination of case study research.
A superb treatment of case study in an educational setting. I propose to use this as the anchor text for case research work with our incoming MA Ed students.
This is a no-nonsense text, sensibly written that provides the clarity that is required.
This text represents a very comprehensive overview of case study research which is ideal for all our students who begin their course with a school-based case study.
I found this book to be a clear and practical methodological guide for those new to conducting case study research. It is well laid out and takes the reader through the various stages of research, including research design, ethical considerations, theoretical and methodological approaches, data analysis and dissemination.
Comprehensive book providing the value of case study in educational research. Chapters are well set out: key points at the beginning, summary at the end with suggested further reading, websites and extension reading. The activities in the chapters are relevant providing opportunities for student engagement and interaction. Very useful for students at M-level.
