`This is a thoughtful, well-crafted, easily accessible book. It will be a treat to teach from, as it creates a series of exercises that reflexively build on one another, as the student moves from assignment to assignment, chapter to chapter, a solid body of knowledge and a nuanced set of interpretive tools are developed. I believe this book would work well for a variety of methodology courses, and I would direct students and colleagues to use it′ - Norman K Denzin, University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign

`A text which students setting out on a masters or doctoral research journey will find invaluable′ - Professor Peter Gilroy, Institute of Education, Manchester Metropolitan University

As a comprehensive and practical guide for students, this book presents clear and straightforward information and advice. The authors present a perspective on methodology as a process, which begins from the moment that curiosity about a topic is aroused. Although in dissertations and theses methodology is normally reported within a single methodology chapter, the authors show how every element of the account - from the framing of Research Questions to the drawing of Conclusions - is a function of methodology. Methodology describes what lies behind every single decision made in the creation of a research study.

Methodology is about justifying the decisions researchers make in selecting and using their methods. The successful dissertation persuades the reader that what the researcher chose to do was not only appropriate but also necessary.

The authors distinguish clearly between methods and methodology, and describe in detail how their relationship is articulated in practice. Methodology is not just a chapter, but a process, which begins from day one of research design.

The text is supported by a series of activities, which will contribute directly to the writing of students′ own methodology chapters. The authors refer to a wide range of other contemporary research guides, and include useful suggested Further Reading in specific areas.
