Review: Catherine Marshall & Gretchen B. Rossman (2006). Designing Qualitative Research

Carlos Nunes Silva


This book is a well-informed introduction to qualitative research methodologies and is organized as a guide for the preparation of qualitative research proposals. It describes and discusses, in seven chapters, different types of qualitative research and the appropriate methods of data collection, analysis and interpretation. This fourth edition includes references to recent theoretical and methodological developments associated with post-modern, feminist and post-colonial perspectives as well as the new challenges faced by online qualitative research. It is a useful reference for undergraduate and graduate students interested to develop a qualitative research project.
