    A Very Short, Fairly Interesting and Reasonably Cheap Book About Qualitative Research 2e

    David Silverman

    David Silverman’s second edition provides a refreshing introduction to doing and debating qualitative research. An antidote to the standard textbook, this new edition shows how research can be methodologically inventive, empirically rigorous, theoretically-alive and practically relevant. Using materials ranging from photographs to novels and newspaper stories, the book demonstrates that getting to grips with qualitative methods means asking ourselves fundamental questions about how we are influenced by contemporary culture. By drawing on examples from websites and social media in the new edition, Silverman’s text acknowledges how our social worlds are changing and explores new arenas for data collection.
