Once again, editors Norman K Denzin and Yvonna S Lincoln have put together a volume that represents the state of the art for the theory and practice of qualitative inquiry. Built on the considerable foundations of the landmark first (1994) and second editions (2000) the Third Edition moves qualitative research boldly into the 21st century. The editors and authors ask how the practices of qualitative inquiry can be used to address issues of social justice in this new century.

As with the second edition, the Third Edition represents virtually a new handbook. There are 14 totally new topics, including, among others, indigenous research, institutional review boards and human subject research, critical and performance ethnography, arts-based inquiry, narrative inquiry, Foucault, the ethics and strategies of on-line research, cultural and investigative poetics, the politics of evaluation. Over half of the 42 chapters are written by new authors. Every returning chapter has been thoroughly revised and updated. The organization is clear and sensible, moving from the general to the specific and from the past to the present and the future.

The SAGE Handbook of Qualitative Research is far-reaching and comprehensive, featuring a virtual `Who's Who' in the human sciences. It is absolutely an essential text for the library of any academic interested in the art, science and practice of qualitative research.

For anyone doing field work or interested in Social Science the Handbooks are essential resources. The huge shift in thinking, methods, and approach to the field's history and philosophy make comparing each of the three editions especially illuminating. Read full review
