Praise for this book
′Drawing on a wide range of their own and others′ experiences, the authors offer a comprehensive and convincing account of the value of case study in educational research. What comes across - quite passionately - is the way in which a case study approach can bring to life some of the complexities, challenges and contradictions inherent in educational settings. The book is written in a clear and lively manner and should be an invaluable resource for those teachers and students who are incorporating a case study dimension into their research work′
- Ian Menter, Professor of Teacher Education, University of Oxford

′This book is comprehensive in its coverage, yet detailed in its exposition of case study research. It is a highly interactive text with a critical edge and is a useful tool for teaching. It is of particular relevance to practitioner researchers, providing accessible guidance for reflective practice. It covers key matters such as: purposes, ethics, data analysis, technology, dissemination and communities for research. And it is a good read!′
- Professor Anne Campbell, formerly of Leeds Metropolitan University

′This excellent book is a principled and theoretically informed guide to case study research design and methods for the collection, analysis and presentation of evidence′
-Professor Andrew Pollard, Institute of Educaiton, University of London
