This book brings together key theories behind qualitative research, whilst drawing attention to novel, cutting-edge approaches to data gathering, such as visual anthropology and storytelling. Offering a comprehensive guide to qualitative analysis, this book goes further than examining research methods to open a discussion on the roles of reflexivity, imagination, emotions and ethics in qualitative research, Covering topics such as reflective analysis, sociological paradigms, action research and organizational ethnography, this book is ideal reading for those who wish to address the gap between undergraduate and postgraduate research-based edited books and encompasses a wide array of methods. Those exploring organization studies will find this two-volume collection extremely valuable as it contains robust contributions from highly-skilled authors who are actively researching in this field.
