The Qualitative Research Experience, Revised Printing by Deborah (New York University) Padgett

The book represents the 'lived experience' of doing qualitative research. It addresses the needs of students as well as experienced quantitative researchers who seek instruction in, and exemplars of, qualitative methods. Though the contributions to this book represent diverse voices, a common purpose unites them--a desire to bolster the supportive structures and methodological rigor of qualitative studies.
