Books by Colin Lankshear:

This research guide addresses the difficulties novice and early career researchers often have with understanding how theory, data analysis and interpretation of findings “hang together” in a well-designed and theorized qualitative research investigation, as well as learning how to draw on such understanding to conduct rigorous data analysis and interpretation of their analytic results. Books that describe data analysis approaches and methods often fail to address the question of how to decide which ones are most appropriate for a particular kind of study, and why they are the best options. This book seeks to clarify these issues in a distinctive way. Chapter authors draw on a successful study they have undertaken and spell out their “problem area,” research questions, and theoretical framing, carefully explaining their choices and decisions. They then show in detail how they analyzed their data, and why they took this approach. Finally, they demonstrate how they “translated” or interpreted the results of their analysis, to make them meaningful in research terms.
