Review: Udo Kuckartz (1999). Computergestützte Analyse qualitativer Daten. Eine Einführung in die Methoden und Arbeitstechniken [Computer Aided Analysis of Qualitative Data: An Introduction to Methods and Techniques]

Dirk Ducar

Abstract


The book does not meet the expectations that the title and foreword raise. It demonstrates the fact that the strict separation of theoretical background and code of practice is a difficult task to accomplish and hardly of any use in the field of qualitative research. Repeated reference to the variety of kinds of analyses that can be conducted using this kind of software does not hide the fact that the author's instructions include a very specific—presumably his own—way of doing qualitative research. In doing so, he provides an insight in to techniques of computer-aided processing of qualitative data, focusing on different types of text retrieval and inquiry for combinations of codes or variables.
