Description: "This is not a book about how to collect qualitative data but rather what to do with qualitative data that have been collected. . . . For evaluators who work with qualitative data, this book provides a wealth of ideas on organizing, analyzing, and presenting such data. It is. . . a set of resources for practicing teachers. It is well-organized, clearly written, and practical. I have recommended the book to graduate students seeking advice on ways to treat the data from their field studies, and they too have found it helpful." --Thomas A. Schwandt in Evaluation and Program Planning "Matthew B. Miles and A. Michael Huberman maintain a high degree of integrity in what they propose and how they present their material. . . . The authors also offer a thorough presentation of issues in qualitative research. The book progresses logically and will be of great assistance to anyone engaged in qualitative research. . . . An excellent addition to any researchers library." --Canadian Journal of Program Evaluation "The book offers communication researchers some of the best recent work on qualitative inquiry in the human disciplines. . . . Published by Sage, the leading publisher of qualitative research in the social sciences today. . . . Matthew B. Miles and A. Michael Huberman offer a ''must-own'' text, in the revisions of their highly influential sourcebook on qualitative data analysis. . . . This second edition updates the 1984 edition, outlining a complex and comprehensive model for a causal, grounded theory and variable approach to the management, analysis, and interpretation of qualitative data. A valuable appendix reviews over 200 computer-assisted models of qualitative data analysis. . . . This work brings the communication scholar up-to-date on where qualitative methods are in current sociological and educational discourse." --Norman K. Denzin in Journal of Communication "The first edition of this book was terrific, and the second edition sets even higher standards. Matthew B. Miles and A. Michael Huberman simply demystify qualitative data analysis, offering practical advice on how to code text and how to compare cases systematically. Most important, they bring the conceptual power of matrix analysis to qualitative research. This book is not just for qualitative social scientists, though. Its a must-have book for anyone who teaches social research methods." --H. Russell Bernard, University of Florida "The second edition of Qualitative Data Analysis is a stunning accomplishment, a major advance beyond their first edition. Thoroughly comprehensive in scope, well-written, and easily accessible, Qualitative Data Analysis provides the best developed and most rigorous set of analytic procedures now available in the social sciences. Qualitative researchers have, with this new edition, a revised and expanded version of their Bible. Its virtues are many: guidelines for reducing and displaying qualitative data; how to build a grounded, conceptual framework; advice on sampling and coding strategies; how to do within and cross-case designs and matrix displays; a thorough review of the ethical issues in qualitative analysis; and strategies for writing and presenting the final report. I recommend that this book be on the shelf of every qualitative researcher. No significant work can be done in this area without reference to Matthew B. Miles and A. Michael Hubermans new book." --Norman K. Denzin, University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign "I think this is a terrific book, and a definite improvement over the first edition. The additions to Chapters 1 and 2 and the new Chapter 3, address issues that have become increasingly important since the first edition was published, and will make the book more useful and influential. The additions to Chapters 4 and 5 are also useful, as is the reorganization of Chapter 5 to make it more coherent. Its also more user-friendly."
