  • Foreword / Donald T. Campbell
  • Preface
  • Getting started : how to know whether and when to use the case study as a research method
  • Designing case studies : identifying your case(s) and establishing the logic of your case study
  • Preparing to collect case study evidence : what you need to do before starting to collect case study data
  • Collecting case study evidence : the principles you should follow in working with six sources of evidence
  • Analyzing case study evidence : how to start your analysis, your analytic choices, and how they work
  • Reporting case studies : how and what to compose.
"[This book] provides a complete portal to the world of case study research. With the integration of 11 applications in this edition, the book gives readers access to...case studies drawn from a wide variety of academic and applied fields. Ultimately, [this book] will guide students in the...design and use of the case study research method. New to this edition: includes 11 in-depth applications that show how researchers have implemented case study methods successfully; increases reference to relativist and constructivist approaches to case study research, as well as how case studies can be part of mixed methods projects; places greater emphasis on using plausible rival explanations to bolster case study quality; discusses synthesizing findings across case studies in a multiple-case study in more detail; adds an expanded list of 15 fields that have text or texts devoted to case study research; and sharpens discussion of distinguishing research from non-research case studies. The author brings to light at least three remaining gaps to be filled in the future: how rival explanations can become more routinely integrated into all case study research; the difference between case-based and variable-based approaches to designing and analyzing case studies; and the relationship between case study research and qualitative research."-- Provided by publisher.

The Desire for Mutual Recognition is a work of accessible social theory that seeks to make visible the desire for authentic social connection, emanating from our social nature, that animates all human relationships. Using a social-phenomenological method that illuminates rather than explains social life, Peter Gabel shows how the legacy of social alienation that we have inherited from prior generations envelops us in a milieu of a "fear of the other, " a fear of each other. Yet because social reality is always co-constituted by the desire for authentic connection and genuine co-presence, social transformation always remains possible, and liberatory social movements are always emerging and providing us with a permanent source of hope. The great progressive social movements for workers' rights, civil rights, and women's and gay liberation, generated their transformative power from their capacity to transcend the reciprocal isolation that otherwise separates us. These movements at their best actually realize our fundamental longing for mutual recognition, and for that very reason they can generate immense social change and bend the moral arc of the universe toward justice. Gabel examines the struggle between desire and alienation as it unfolds across our social world, calling for a new social-spiritual activism that can go beyond the limitations of existing progressive theory and action, intentionally foster and sustain our capacity to heal what separates us, and inspire a new kind of social movement that can transform the world.

5. Diary methods [2018]

Book
1 online resource.
The diary method is highly flexible and can be incorporated into a range of research projects. For example, diary researchers can operate under a range of epistemological assumptions (i.e. both realist and social constructivist, etic and emic, etc.). In addition, diary studies can address a variety of research questions, and diaries themselves can be used to collect data for use in qualitative, quantitative, and mixed-methods designs. Further, emerging developments in the use of technologies, such as video recording, social media, and photography, offer new opportunities for the collection of data within a range of everyday contexts. However, managing, analyzing, and writing up the complex data gathered in these diary studies can present unique challenges to the qualitative research. For example, the researcher will have to consider the potential for participant attrition in this labor intensive research design, variability in the richness of participant diary entries, and a range of ethical considerations in preserving the anonymity of participant life descriptions. Other considerations include the style for presenting the data, the size and selection of quotes extracted for the manuscript, and whether to organize the presentation of results by participant, group, context, themes, or time. The strengths, weaknesses, and usefulness of a diary study will depend upon how the researcher addresses these issues during their data collection process, data analysis, and in the composition of the final report. In this book, Hyers provides her readers with a wealth of guidance and expert insight to ensure the success of their diary studies.

Offering a fresh take on the purpose of social studies today, James A. Duplass positions philosophical counseling as a way for teachers to engage students in thinking deeply about what it means to be a citizen in a democratic society. The Idea of a Social Studies Education takes a uniquely humanistic approach to the idea of a social studies education to show how teachers can act as philosophical counselors in preparing students for active civic engagement. Duplass reminds the reader of the needs of students in modern society who seek to develop an identity worth living and the role social studies can play in students achieving that process. By focusing on the cultivation of students' autonomy, authenticity, efficacy, and agency, Duplass' approach avoids political biases and instead encourages critical thinking to decipher what a democratic ideology truly is.

The mathematical challenges coming from the social and behavioral sciences differ significantly from typical applied mathematical concerns. ""Change, "" for instance, is ubiquitous, but without knowing the fundamental driving force, standard differential and iterative methods are not appropriate. Although differing forms of aggregation are widely used, a general mathematical assessment of potential pitfalls is missing. These realities provide opportunities to create new mathematical approaches. These themes are described in an introductory, expository, and accessible manner by exploring new ways to handle dynamics and evolutionary game theory, to identify subtleties of decision and voting methods, to recognize unexpected modeling concerns, and to introduce new approaches with which to examine game theory. Applications range from avoiding undesired consequences when designing policy to identifying unanticipated voting (where the ""wrong"" person could win), nonparametric statistical, and economic ""supply and demand"" properties.

How can programs and organizations ensure they are adhering to core principles--and assess whether doing so is yielding desired results? From evaluation pioneer Michael Quinn Patton, this book introduces the principles-focused evaluation (P-FE) approach and demonstrates its relevance and application in a range of settings. Patton explains why principles matter for program development and evaluation and how they can serve as a rudder to navigate the uncertainties, turbulence, and emergent challenges of complex dynamic environments. In-depth exemplars illustrate how the unique GUIDE framework is used to determine whether principles provide meaningful guidance (G) and are useful (U), inspiring (I), developmentally adaptable (D), and evaluable (E). User-friendly features include rubrics, a P-FE checklist, firsthand reflections and examples from experienced P-FE practitioners, sidebars and summary tables, and end-of-chapter application exercises.

Software is cut and dried-every button you press has a predictable effect-but qualitative analysis is open-ended and unfolds in unpredictable ways. This contradiction is best resolved by separating analytic strategies-what you plan to do-from software tactics-how you plan to do it. Expert MAXQDA users have unconsciously learned to do this. The Five-Level QDA (R) method unpacks the process so that you can learn it consciously and efficiently. The first part of the book explains how the contradiction between analytic strategies and software tactics is reconciled by "translating" between them. The second part provides both an in-depth description of how MAXQDA works and comprehensive instruction in the five steps of "translation". These steps are illustrated with examples from a variety of research projects. The third part contains real-world qualitative research projects from a variety of disciplines, methodologies, and kinds of qualitative analysis-all illustrated in MAXQDA using the Five-Level QDA method. The book is accompanied by three sets of video demonstrations on the companion website. The functionality and interface design of MAXQDA for Windows and Mac are identical. The Five-Level QDA method learned from this book is therefore the same whether you are working on a Mac or Windows computer. The Five-Level QDA method is based on the authors' combined 40 years of experience teaching MAXQDA and other software packages used as platforms for conducting qualitative analysis. After many years observing their students' challenges they developed the Five-Level QDA method to describe the process that long-time MAXQDA experts unconsciously adopt. The Five-Level QDA method is independent of software program or methodology, and the principles apply to any type of qualitative project.

In the Fourth Edition of this bestselling book, John W Creswell and new co-author Cheryl N Poth explore the philosophical underpinnings, history and key elements of each of five qualitative inquiry traditions: narrative research, phenomenology, grounded theory, ethnography and case study - putting them side by side, so that we can see the differences. They relate research designs to each of the traditions of enquiry and provide strategies for writing introductions to studies, collecting data, analyzing data, writing a narrative and verifying results.
