Short Desription

"The Handbook provides both philosophical and practical foundations for using mixed methods in social science inquiry. Theory about mixing methods is nicely balanced and illustrated with concrete examples. All aspects of inquiry are covered from conceptualizing research to selecting methods, analyzing and interpreting data, and reporting findings. The Handbook offers the most comprehensive review of mixed methods available anywhere. It will be a definitive reference for a long time to come."
--MICHAEL QUINN PATTON, The Union Institute and Utilization-Focused Evaluation

"The Handbook contains a nice mix of internationally-recognized researchers as well as some whose names I saw for the first time . . . I think this mixture lends the book strength as it provides a diversity of perspectives."
--GERALD K. LETENDRE, Penn State University

The Handbook of Mixed Methods in Social & Behavioral Research contains a gold mine of articles by leading scholars on what has come to be known as the third methodological movement in social research. Aimed at surveying the differing viewpoints and disciplinary approaches of mixed methods, this breakthrough book examines mixed methods from the research enterprise to paradigmatic issues to application. The book also discusses the strengths and weaknesses of mixed methods designs, and provides an array of specific examples in a variety of disciplines, from psychology to nursing. The book closes with a brief section on how to teach and perform collaborative research using a mixed methods research design.

Written so that it can be used either as a pedagogical tool or as a reference for researchers, the book is rich in examples and includes a glossary, easy-to-follow diagrams, and tables to help readers become more familiar with the language and controversies in this evolving area.

"The contributors to this handbook have a broad range of expertise in the area of mixed methods research. They offer broad and diverse points of view on the topic of multi-methods research and offer engaging and controversial points of view on a broad range of issues. The fact that there is not broad agreement on this topic makes for a lively engagement with the range of articles. There is a 'third methodological movement' underway and this handbook is at the cutting edge of capturing this third wave methodology."
--SHARLENE HESSE-BIBER, Boston College

"The Handbook of Mixed Methods in Social & Behavioral Research will become the basic text for all researchers interested in conducting mixed method investigations. This edited volume contains some real jewels in advancing the epistemological veracity of mixed method research."
--JOHN GABER, University of Nebraska
