This distinctive, nuanced book addresses the more complex theoretical issues embedded in the qualitative research paradigm. Adopting a reflective stance that emphasises the role of the researcher it carefully avoids a standardised 'tick box' approach to methods.

Throughout each chapter, theory is powerfully and persuasively interwoven as its impact on practical topics such as data management and safety in the field is discussed. O'Reilly and Kiyimba bring an authority and clarity to the debate, taking us beyond the mechanical notions of qualitative methods and standardised approaches to research. Instead, they focus on subjects like methodological integrity, perspective driven data collection and theoretically-led analysis.

This will be an important resource for anyone looking to practically engage with advanced qualitative research methods.

MEDIA REVIEWS
O'Reilly and Kiyimba's thorough and thoughtful book will be a great help to qualitative researchers looking for guidance in the 'why' of their research method. In navigating the reefs of theory that underlie empirical method, this book provides a welcome and valuable compass. -- Charles Antaki
This invaluable book offers a wonderfully clear and accessible overview of the often confusing theories informing contemporary qualitative methods. It is also packed with valuable examples and case studies that illuminate the process, methods and application of qualitative research. -- Alexa Hepburn
The book draws on several experts and seminal texts in the field of qualitative research and is comprehensive in its overview of theoretical and ethical considerations. It will help qualitative researchers become aware of important research decisions to be considered in order to improve the rigour of their work. It would be valuable to beginning qualitative researchers to gain an overview of theoretical paradigms, and the questions and ethical issues to be considered in all stages of qualitative research. Advanced social scientists will also find it a helpful reference text with stimulating questions about value for practice. -- Willeke Rietdijk
