John Peel ist der liebe Gott eines musikalischen Universums, das er eigenhändig geschaffen hat. Seine obsessive Suche nach dem Neuen in der Musik und seine Abneigung gegen Mittelmaß und Mainstream machten den Briten zum einflussreichsten DJ der Musikgeschichte. Mit seinen BBC-Sendungen, die weltweit zu hören waren, prägte er vierzig Jahre lang Musikfans und Musiker. Unzählige Bands haben ihm ihren Erfolg zu verdanken, ganze Genres wie Punk, Rap, Techno oder Hiphop hätten ohne ihn ein anderes Gesicht. Die Liste von Musikern, die er bekannt machte, ist endlos. Jimi Hendrix, David Bowie, Roxy Music, Grateful Dead, The Smiths und The White Stripes sind nur einige Namen. Während der Arbeit an seiner Autobiografie, für die der englische Verlag über zwei Millionen Euro hinblätterte, starb John Peel unerwartet an einem Herzinfarkt. Seine Frau, die er liebevoll »The Pig« nannte, schrieb das Buch zu Ende.

At last, an accessible, authoritative, non-nonsense guide to the key concepts in one of the most widely used methodologies in social science: Ethnography. The book: - Covers and summarises the basic and related issues in ethnography that are covered nowhere else in a single text - It is an outstanding teaching and research resource which examines topics like 'sampling' and 'generalising' as well as embracing new fields such as virtual, visual and multi-sighted ethnography. - Time-honoured themes such as key informants, access, participant observation and rapport are here as well as key contemporary issues such as reflexivity, writing and ethics. - Each concept is presented comprehensively yet critically, with relevant examples. This is not quite an encyclopaedia but far more than a dictionary. It is comprehensive yet brief. It is small and neat, easy to hold and flick through. It is what students and researchers have been waiting for.

Studierende und Forscher verschiedener Disziplinen, die am Entwickeln einer Theorie interessiert sind, stellen sich nach der Datenerhebung oft die Frage: Wie komme ich zu einer Theorie, die sich auf die empirische Realität gründet? Die Autoren beantworten diese und andere Fragen, die sich bei der qualitativen Interpretation von Daten ergeben. Auf klare und einfache Art geschrieben vermittelt das Buch Schritt für Schritt die grundlegenden Kenntnisse und Verfahrensweisen der "grounded theory" (datenbasierte Theorie), so daß es besonders für Personen interessant ist, die sich zum ersten Mal mit der Theorienbildung anhand qualitativer Datenanalyse beschäftigen. Das Buch gliedert sich in drei Teile. Teil I bietet einen Überblick über die Denkweise, die der "grounded theory" zugrunde liegt. Teil II stellt die speziellen Techniken und Verfahrensweisen genau dar, wie z.B. verschiedene Kodierungsarten. In Teil III werden zusätzliche Verfahrensweisen erklärt und Evaluationskriterien genannt.

Good communication and interpersonal skills remain one of the enduring and fundamental characteristics of high-quality nursing and midwifery practice. This is despite major developments in our knowledge of scientific, technological and pharmacological health treatments. However, because communication is viewed as an implicit part of everyday life, the skills required for effective communication and appropriate professional interactions are often overlooked. This book provides student nurses with the essential information on communication and interpersonal skills. It clearly explores the core concepts and evidence base and is practical and accessible, helping students to gain confidence in these skills.

Der Klassiker über den qualitativen Forschungsansatz der "Grounded Theory", geschrieben von den Entwicklern dieser Methode "Obwohl unser Buch sich in erster Linie an Soziologen richtet, glauben wir, dass es jedem nutzen kann, der daran interessiert ist, soziale Phänomene zu untersuchen politischer, pädagogischer, wirtschaftlicher, industrieller oder welcher Art auch immer." In der Tat ist "Grounded Theory" quer durch die wissenschaftlichen Disziplinen zum Standardbegriff der qualitativen Sozialforschung ge - worden. Die inzwischen zum Klassiker avancierte Arbeit von Glaser und Strauss eröffnet eine lehrbare und auch lernbare Forschungsstrategie. Das Konzept bietet eine Antwort auf das Problem, die oft schmerzlich empfundene Lücke zwischen empirischer Forschung und Theorie zu schliessen.
