How are case studies designed? - What methods can be used? - How do we analyse and make sense of our data? .

Using a wide range of real-life examples, this book sets out for those new to the method how best to design and carry out case studies in the social sciences and humanities.

Mr. Thomas' case study guide is reader friendly and informative. A case study is a complex topic but needs to be interpreted for the novice practitioner. Thank you for a job well done.

We begin by describing the case scenario. The purpose of this qualitative case study was to explore differences between students’ gender and their.

I've read other books on cast studies. I haven't much to say of note except this is highly readable, even an enjoyable read. there are parts where I disagree but the disagreements are more over the authors tendency to reject case studies as a means from which to generalize and he legitimizes the idiosyncratic nature of case studies by classifying all social science research as "provisional." The difference between the author's and my point of view is a matter of degree; and no need to get into it. The main point is that if you want to know about case studies and how they are done and how they relate to theory then this is as good a primer as you would want. The book is academic without becoming either tendentious or opaque. I will probably use it in my own methods courses

Can't believe I'm the first guy to rate this book!

I am doing a case study, which prompted me to get this book. As I read it, and compared it to all the other study books in my doctoral journey, I was struck by things the book didn't take presume as vital for a case study. In particular, the notions of "validity" and "reliability" which I must say, I was struggling with in my Ch 3. A researcher could certainly replicate my approach, but since we are dealing with "people" responses are likely to be varied and thus validity and reliability are less important, as is the sample size. What Thomas stresses, it is the conception, construction, and conduct of the study that is most important! (p71). Brilliant.

As I go back and look now at so many case study dissertations that burped up validity dialogue to push it past a committee in dogmatic progression I find it all a rather odd form of naive empiracism.
