Ravitch: Qualitative Research Focused on developing the theoretical, methodological, and conceptual knowledge needed to engage in rigorous, valid, and respectful qualitative research, this introductory text presents the field of qualitative research in a unique and meaningful way. The book helps readers understand what the authors call "criticality" in qualitative research by communicating the foundations and processes of qualitative research with clarity and simplicity while still capturing its complexity. Packed with real-life examples of questions, issues, and situations that stem from the authors' and their students' research, the book humanizes the qualitative research endeavor, illustrates the types of scenarios that arise, and emphasizes the importance of actively considering paradigmatic values throughout every stage of the research process. In every chapter, the authors illustrate the qualitative research process as decidedly ideological, political, and subjective using themes of criticality, reflexivity, collaboration, and rigor.

By exploring qualitative research through a unique analytic lens, then cumulatively elaborating on methods in each successive chapter, this innovative work cultivates a skill set and literacy base that prepares readers to work strategically with empirical materials in their own fieldwork. Renowned authors Johnny Saldaña and Matt Omasta combine clear, accessible writing and analytic insight to show that analysis, in its broadest sense, is a process undertaken throughout the entire research experience.
