Title: Multiple Case Narrative
Subtitle: A qualitative approach to studying multiple populations
Written By: Asher Shkedi
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=SiN%207
Series Title: Studies in Narrative 7
Description:

This book introduces a methodology for the construction of a comprehensive
narrative description and narrative-based theory from the study of multiple
populations. The book has two parallel foci. On the one hand, it is a
conceptual treatise, focusing on the principles of the Multiple Case
Narrative. On the other hand, it also has a practical "how-to" focus with a
step-by-step guide to conducting a Multiple Case Narrative. The book is
accessible and comprehensive and addresses both those in the field as well
as those with little background in the methodologies of narrative study and
qualitative research.This book is also relevant to those who are interested
in other qualitative varieties like single and collective narrative
inquiry, single and collective case study, as well as ethnography, because
each of the procedures and techniques described here can be easily utilized
for conducting other types of qualitative research.
