In this much expanded and updated Second Edition of his bestselling introductory textbook for the beginning researcher, David Silverman: takes account of the flood of qualitative work since the 1990s; includes a new chapter on Visual Images; and provides an expanded treatment of discourse analysis.
All chapters have been substantially rewritten with the aim of greater clarity and to take into account the growing interdisciplinary interest in qualitative research. To aid the student researcher the number of exercises has been increased and Key Points and Recommended Readings appear at the end of each chapter.
