By neglecting the ‘human’ factor in the process of research analysis, much has been lost and researchers are now looking for new ways to broaden the social reality in their research.

In this volume, originally published in 1993, the research perspective adopted shows new methods of dealing with the world of education, including ethnographic studies and action research. The ‘voices’ offer a critical insight into both the scientific rationale and the methodological application of their individual approaches. This book provides a rich source of material for students and researchers doing qualitative analysis.
