"The first edition of Qualitative Communication Research Methods set a high standard for accessibility, thoroughness, and depth. The second edition takes that standard even higher. Lindlof and Taylor have written a complete text that addresses the theory and technique of qualitative research across a breadth of approaches with substantive and illuminating examples drawn from a variety of topical areas. The writing is exemplaryengaging, careful and dead on. The authors address the problems and controversies of research without bogging down in indecision or glossing to happy endings. The pedagogy is solid. This is a book for the practitioner and the student. It is a "go to" text." --James Anderson, University of Utah "I used the first edition of this book in my graduate qualitative methods class, and I look forward to using the second edition this fall. The changes are excellent. The text is even more readable and comprehensive, it has been up-dated, and includes all the topics pertinent to understanding and doing Communication qualitative research. The new edition contains exercises and many examples and exemplars, a well as new chapters on computer mediated qualitative research and on authoring and writing." --Carolyn Ellis, University of South Florida The Second Edition of Qualitative Communication Research Methods builds on the strengths of the first edition, taking readers through every step of the qualitative research process -- from the research idea to the finished report. Unique for its coverage of the entire discipline of Communication, this text now includes a new chapter on computer-mediated communication (identities, relationships, and communities) as well as fully updated and expanded key topics including: developing research questions, coding data, using computers in analysis, and transcription. Processes covered in the text include interviewing, writing field notes, and creating ethical relationships with participants. Features: In-depth discussion of research methods, designs, types of analysis, and writing strategies Student exercises and helpful samples of field research texts and materials Solutions to issues and problems of qualitative communication research Progressive approach to qualitative research and its contribution to the knowledge of rapidly changing technological cultures Examination of how new directions in critical and interpretive theory are influencing research practice in Communication. Qualitative Communication Research Methods, Second Edition, provides students with numerous examples of work in the field illustrating how studies are designed, carried out, written, evaluated, and applied to theory. This interesting and accessible text provides a rewarding and challenging introduction to qualitative methodology.
