The strength of the book lies not only in the clarity with which it is written but in the use of examples and tables...I would have no problem in recommending this text equally to both pre and post-registration students of nursing, and also to students studying for higher degrees as a useable text which is easy to read and contains a vast amount of information which is logically presented' - Nurse Researcher This Third Edition of Uwe Flick's bestselling textbook has been fully revised, expanded and updated but retains all of the student-friendly elements and carefully structured qualities of the previous edition. Brand new features include: - Updated discussions and references throughout the text - The integration into all chapters of additional features including chapter overviews, case studies, lists of key points and end-of-chapter exercises - 6 new chapters including a guide to using the book, a chapter on ethics, the uses of literature in qualitative research, an overview of research design, a discussion centred on using documents, and a final chapter on qualitative online research.
