The revised and updated second edition of Qualitative Analysis for Planning & Policy is a roadmap to help planners access qualitative data and integrate it into their planning investigations. Planning and policy decisions are not based solely on numbers, and this book equips planners with a how-to guide to see what has been missing "between the lines" of quantitative data and make good decisions using the best possible information.

Each chapter offers step-by-step instruction on how to set up and enact diverse types of qualitative research, and case studies demonstrate how qualitative research techniques can be combined with quantitative methods to tackle complex real-world projects.

For over a decade Qualitative Analysis for Planning & Policy has been an indispensable resource for students and researchers, experienced and novice planners. The revised second edition offers myriad tools to help twenty-first-century planners make intelligent decisions, including new qualitative research techniques, technological innovations, and contemporary case studies.

"The first version of Qualitative Analysis for Planning and Policy has long been the key text in this area. Providing well-written guidance on study design, data collection, analysis, and research outputs, this new edition adds a useful chapter on using qualitative methods in public participation. Raising value questions, the book also helps readers cultivate ethically informed approaches. Using clear prose, multiple real-world examples,and informative diagrams and charts, the book is easy to incorporate into methods, workshop, and seminar formats. Outside the classroom is a reference for practitioners wanting ideas about how to get more out of their project activities." -Ann Forsyth, Ruth and Frank Stanton Chair of Urban Planning, Harvard University

"This book remains the go-to-source for planners curious about how to use qualitative methods to explore and tell a compelling story about issues of interest. The second edition offers novel insights on using emerging forms of big data and technologies, like smart phones and drones, to inform more responsive and holistic planning processes. Gaber's conversational writing style, ample use of examples, and from-the-trenches perspective makes this an accessible resource for practitioners, community advocates, students, and faculty alike." -Deirdre Pfeiffer, AICP, Associate Professor and Program Director, Master of Urban and Environmental Planning, School of Geographical Sciences and Urban Planning, Arizona State University

Das Dateiformat PDF zeigt auf jeder Hardware eine Buchseite stets identisch an. Daher ist eine PDF auch für ein komplexes Layout geeignet, wie es bei Lehr- und Fachbüchern verwendet wird (Bilder, Tabellen, Spalten, Fußnoten). Bei kleinen Displays von E-Readern oder Smartphones sind PDF leider eher nervig, weil zu viel Scrollen notwendig ist. Ein Kopierschutz bzw. Digital Rights Management wird bei diesem E-Book nicht eingesetzt.
