Opis: Qualitative Research and Social Change - P Cox

Interest in the undertaking, findings and application of social research has grown in recent years, leading to debates about methodology and methods applied in social research. This book offers an original, substantive exploration of the interconnections between theories, methodologies, methods and social change in qualitative research. Qualitative research is being undertaken in challenging times and the chapters in this book contain strong arguments for the continuing worth of the contribution of qualitative research in the twenty-first century. 'This collection of excellent chapters by a group of international scholars provides much-needed examples of how research can be responsive to the demands of ever-shifting social realities.' -Dr. Anthony Hickey, Professor of Sociology, Department of Anthropology and Sociology, Western Carolina University, Cullowhee, North Carolina USA. 'This collection brilliantly explores social research that benefits the exploited or excluded groups it is studying. This wide-ranging work will be essential reading for all who are concerned with the social relevance of critical scholarship.' - Professor Marcel van der Linden, Director of Research, International Institute of Social History and Amsterdam School for Social-Scientific Research, University of Amsterdam, The Netherlands. 'Incorporating questions of emotions and identity, community and family, criminality and health, performance and learning, the authors in this collection advocate the importance of the qualitative approach. As a famous photographer once said: if you want a good picture, you have to get close.' - Dr. Howard Williamson, Professor of European Youth Policy, Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, University of Glamorgan, Wales, UK.Introduction: The Importance of Qualitative Research to Social Change -- Preliminary Considerations; P.
