Many students struggle to complete qualitative research projects because the research itself is inherently messy. To address this challenge the authors have distilled decades of experience into a first-of-its-kind, highly practical reference for graduate students.
At the heart of the book is a series of chapters that models the typical progression of a dissertation. Each chapter is illustrated by examples that give the reader an understanding of what the actual write-up would look like. Emphasis throughout the book is on conceptual understanding as it relates to the practical aspects involved in navigating the dissertation process.
