This carefully selected compendium documents the enormous variation in qualitative political science research – and the dynamic progress it has made over the past decades. The volumes provide an excellent collection for political scientists seeking a systematic overview of the field, and they offer a great resource for teaching research design and methodology.
The Sage Major Work on Qualitative Research in Political Science is a superb collection. Drawing together some of the most influential scholars in the field, the editors have produced a methodological dialogue that is truly more than the sum of its parts. Researchers, teachers, and students will find this collection invaluable as an entryway into key debates and developments in the field today.
Blatter, Haverland, and van Hulst deserve our gratitude for bringing together this large and valuable collection of key articles. They make a decisive contribution to further institutionalizing the field of qualitative methods as a well-defined, coherent branch of methodology.
