Many changes have occurred on the landscape of qualitative research, and these changes and my thinking about them are reflected in this second edition.
An explanation of five approaches to qualitative research.
This fifth edition emphasizes authentic assessment of children's reading abilities, from the most emergent readers to advanced readers.
Using a reader-friendly, structured approach, Qualitative Research in Applied Linguistics: A Practical Introduction presents an easy-to-follow and straightforward guide to qualitative inquiry. Written by leading authors in a clear, informal style, it is an essential companion for graduate students and practicing teachers embarking on their first qualitative research study in applied linguistics. The ten central chapters introduce core qualitative research approaches and commonly used data collection methods. Each of these chapters offers: - A comprehensive guide to help you understand and use each approach or method - An illustrative example from applied linguistics research to help you see the approach or method 'in action' - A succinct outline of how you can avoid common mistakes and improve the quality of your research - Discussion questions and tasks to give you hands-on experience working with each research approach or data collection method Additional chapters offer engaging introductions to the qualitative research cycle, ethics, and writing up your research. There is also a glossary of important key words. This book has been carefully written to provide you with the essential research knowledge, skills - and confidence - you need to begin your qualitative research project.

In this book, Robert Wald provides a coherent, pedagogical introduction to the formulation of quantum field theory in curved spacetime. He begins with a treatment of the ordinary one-dimensional quantum harmonic oscillator, progresses through the construction of quantum field theory in flat spacetime to possible constructions of quantum field theory in curved spacetime, and, ultimately, to an algebraic formulation of the theory. In his presentation, Wald disentangles essential features of the theory from inessential ones (such as a particle interpretation) and clarifies relationships between various approaches to the formulation of the theory. He also provides a comprehensive, up-to-date account of the Unruh effect, the Hawking effect, and some of its ramifications. In particular, the subject of black hole thermodynamics, which remains an active area of research, is treated in depth.

Nadine Hubbs shows how a gifted group of Manhattan-based gay composers were pivotal in creating a distinctive "American sound" and in the process served as architects of modern American identity. Focusing on a talented circle that included Aaron Copland, Virgil Thomson, Leonard Bernstein, Marc Blitzstein, Paul Bowles, David Diamond, and Ned Rorem, The Queer Composition of America's Sound homes in on the role of these artists' self-identification.
Shih (Anthropology and Asian Studies, University of Florida) presents the first English-language ethnography of the Moso, a matrilineal group that lives in southwest China's Yunnan and Sichuan provinces. Drawing on field work conducted over two decades, the author gives give a comprehensive account of tisese, a visiting system that most Moso adults practice in place of marriage. He also details the Mosos' traditional social and cultural conditions, including their unusual gender system and the high value they place on household harmony. Meticulously researched and very well written, this book will interest scholars of sexuality and gender relations, and appeal to some general readers interested in Chinese culture and ethnography.
