Introduction to book review section
Welcome to the book review pages of QROM. As Book Reviews Editor I would like to encourage reviews covering a wide range of books of interest to readers of this journal. This includes textbooks at all levels, volumes describing innovations in qualitative methods, and those addressing philosophical and political aspects of methodology. I would also welcome reviews of classic works in the field, focusing on their personal impact on the reviewer, their influence on subsequent writers, and the extent to which they have stood the test of time. I expect reviews to be normally of about 1,000 words in length, though will also consider longer “essay reviews” of up to 2,000 words. If you are thinking about writing a review for QROM, I advise you to contact me first, both to ensure that the book in question is appropriate for this journal, and also because I may be able to arrange a review copy for you. Reviews should be sent to me as an e-mail attachment, at the address below.
In this first issue of QROM, we present an essay review of the latest edition of a highly influential text: The Sage Handbook of Qualitative Research.
