The Landscape of Qualitative Research, Third Edition, the first volume of the paperback versions of the The SAGE Handbook of Qualitative Research, Third Edition, takes a look at the field from a broadly theoretical perspective, and is composed of the Handbook's Parts I (“Locating the Field”), II (“Major Paradigms and Perspectives”), and VI (“The Future of Qualitative Research”). The Landscape of Qualitative Research, Third Edition attempts to put the field of qualitative research in context. Part I provides background on the field, starting with history, then action research and the academy, and the politics and ethics of qualitative research. Part II isolates what we regard as the major historical and contemporary paradigms now structuring and influencing qualitative research in the human disciplines. The chapters move from competing paradigms (positivist, post positivist, constructivist, critical theory) to specific interpretive perspectives, feminisms, racialized discourses, cultural studies, sexualities, and queer theory. Part III considers the future of qualitative research.New to the Third Edition Contains a new Reader's Guide prepared by the editors that helps students and researchers navigate through the chapters, locating the different methodologies, methods, techniques, issues, and theories relevant to their work. Presents an abbreviated Glossary of terms that offer students and researchers a ready resource to help decode the language of qualitative research. Offers recommended Readings that provide readers with additional sources on specific topic areas linked to their research. Intended AudienceThis text is designed for graduate students taking classes in social research methods and qualitative methods as well as researchers throughout the social sciences and in some fields within the humanities.
