"[This book] is a unique tour de force. So many collections or edited works in qualitative research focus on method, with each chapter dedicated to a different school of inquiry. This book focuses instead on philosophical and sociological questions with a compelling sense of passion and urgency. The authors push boundaries in their respective fields, amplifying the critical instincts of the reader or perturbing them to question their own beliefs."

—Paul Rhodes, The Qualitative Report
