Now issued as part of the Routledge Education Classic Edition series, A Qualitative Manifesto provides a "call to arms" for researchers from the leading figure in the qualitative research commnunity, Norman Denzin. Denzin asks for a research tradition engaged in social justice, sensitive to identity and indigenous concerns, brave to risk presentation in forms beyond traditional academic writing, and committed to teaching this to their students and colleagues.
A new preface text by the author reflects on the changes in research, society and in social justice since the publication of the original edition. Denzin looks to the past, present and future of the field, underlining the continuing importance of this brief, provocative book.
Norman K. Denzin is professor of communications at University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign and co-editor with Yvonna Lincoln of the Handbook of Qualitative Research and the journal Qualitative Inquiry, as well as author of two dozen books
