A Book Review: Anfara, V. A., & Mertz, N. T. (Eds.). (2006). Theoretical frameworks in qualitative research. Thousand Oaks, CA: Sage
AbstractThis review describes a recent book on qualitative research by Anfara and Mertz concerning the important task facing academic researchers to properly relate their study to theoretical frameworks. Thanks to this collection of ten actual studies by respected academics, it becomes possible for novice researchers to see how the process of aligning theoretical frameworks with qualitative research endeavours should unfold. This will no doubt lessen angst about accomplishing their work. Readers will find at least one chapter in this book that is similar enough to their own chosen research topic to serve as a very useful guideline in choosing and working with theoretical frameworks.
