Editor and Author Bios
An extremely useful handbook for widening the knowledge for students undertaking qualitative research and understanding different methods of analysis.
I think this book will be essential to a Sociology of Literature course. Also I can use it for Social Anthropology. I particularly liked the interactional aspect of the text, and the diverse nature of theoretical frameworks employed.
great inclusion of philosophical ideas such as Sartre. although slightly wordy, it gives excellent explanation and impetus to anyone who chooses narrativa analysis for their research.
my favourite chapter is 3.2 by Sarah K. Carney
