It is a clear, accessible and practical guide to each stage of the process, including:

- Working with data through interpretive, comparative, pattern and relational analyses

- Developing explanatory theory and coherent conclusions, based on qualitative data.

The book pairs theoretical discussion with practical advice using a host of examples from diverse projects across the social sciences. It describes data analysis strategies in actionable steps and helpfully links to the use of computer software where relevant.

This is one of the most insightful books ever written on qualitative data analysis, and certainly the most detailed and comprehensive. Pat Bazeley has done a magnificent job of both covering recent developments, and providing a user-friendly presentation with numerous examples. This will be an indispensable resource for qualitative researchers.

Pat Bazeley has produced what is sure to become a core text for those working with qualitative data. She covers the whole process from first ideas through to explanatory models and theories without restricting her coverage to just one software package. This excellent book is a thorough and entertaining resource that will be of use to both the novice and the more experienced researcher.

'Pat Bazeley's book advances the procedures of qualitative data coding and analysis. Her work provides a highly accessible framework for both new and seasoned researchers to consider in the analysis of interview, survey, photo and video data collected in qualitative studies. This text would be a great addition to a graduate level course in qualitative research. SAGE once again demonstrates it is a reliable source of academic and discipline-specific texts, as evidenced by Pat Bazeley's newest work in the field'

-- Susan Zoll

This is an amazing contribution to qualitative data analysis, it is a very thorough and scholarly book. I use it as the course text for my teaching, and as I dip in and out of your book I continue to be impressed. I actually think it stands in its own right as the best, most comprehensive book on qualitative data analysis.
