"Serious students of qualitative methods will have this book in their libraries. It brings together some of the best representations of our qualitative traditions, and links them to current movements in the field. Weinberg's introductory essay alone is worth the price of the book." Gale Miller, Marquette University "Weinberg's theoretical framework is sophisticated and will encourage conversation and deliberation about qualitative methodology. Those interested in issues of methodological epistemology will find much food for thought in this collection." Donileen R. Loseke, University of South Florida " a must for people studying or using qualitative research methods" Davina Banner. "This volume provides an overview of the theoretical controversies that characterize a variety of qualitative methods and would make a valuable contribution to graduate students' and scholars' collections."
