In this seminal work, the authors provide the first systematic exploration of the philosophical foundations and the historical development of qualitative inquiry. Thorough yet accessible, this volume is an indispensable tool for language and literacy researchers—novices and experts alike.
Using a “genealogical” approach, the authors:
George Kamberelis is Associate Professor in the School of Education at the State University of New York at Albany and Greg Dimitriadis is Associate Professor in the Department of Educational Leadership and Policy at the State University of New York at Buffalo.
Simply put, this book is comprehensive and smart. It represents a major contribution to the field. Brilliantly done.”
—Margaret Finders, Washington University in St. Louis
“This book reaches beyond a discussion of methods per se to provide a comprehensive survey of the intellectual history/genealogy of major lines of approach in qualitative research on language and literacy.”
Frederick Erickson, George F. Kneller Professor of Anthropology of Education, University of California, Los Angeles
