Carol Grbich's new edition provides succinct and useful coverage of the newer qualitative approaches. It is a must read for those seeking an understanding of data analysis from a perspective that includes an understanding of paradigms, traditions of inquiry and traditional analytical approaches.

Qualitative Data Analysis is an excellent text that deals with not just the practical issues of handling different types of qualitative data but also provides insights into methodological and epistemological assumptions underpinning the methods of analysis in qualitative inquiry. Carol has impressively weaved detailed examples of qualitative data with appropriate research theories, which enables a better understanding of analytical approaches in the research process.

I found this book is a reading especially useful for researchers who are starting to study and develop qualitative research. It allows readers to understand the theoretical groundings of qualitative approaches (2) and introduces qualitative analysis software (on this topic further reading is necessary). The organisation of the contents makes it easy to read (Key points, examples, summaries and student exercises). I have recommended the book to my students, as an introductory text to qualitative analysis.
