Hollway and Jefferson have updated their ground-breaking book for students and researchers looking to do qualitative research differently. The new edition critically reviews many of the assumptions, claims and methods of qualitative research and also acts as a `how to' guide to the method the authors call the Free Association Narrative Interview. In the new edition, the authors situate their arguments firmly within a tradition of psychosocial research and show how their method has developed over the last decade. The book follows this approach through the phases of empirical research practice. At each stage they use examples from their own research and end with an extended case study which demonstrates the value of their method in producing a psychosocial research subject; that is, one with socially-imbued depth, complexity and biographical uniqueness.

This is both a `how to' book and one that critically reviews many of the assumptions, claims and methods of qualitative research. Applying a psycho-social understanding of subjectivity to research practice involves conceptualising researcher and researched as co-producers of meanings in the research relationship. The authors use the notion of the "defended subject" to indicate that people will defend themselves against any anxieties in the information they provide in a research context. To interpret interviewees' responses should entail developing a method in which narratives are central, as should a strategy of interpretation in which interviewees' free associations are given precedence over narrative coherence.

Hinshelwood se ha propuesto recoger los hilos teoricos del pensamiento de Klein, aunque sin dejar de exponer los lugares de la clinica practica que fueron su matriz generadora. La primera parte del diccionario esta compuesta por trece ensayos ordenados segun su articulacion conceptual. Se pueden leer como una introduccion al pensamiento kleiniano. Parten de un ensayo sobre la tecnica del juego, y terminan en una exposicion de la identificacion proyectiva, acaso la nocion mas novedosa, en cuya matizada arquitectura culmina el analisis del problema de la trasferencia. Son esplendidas las paginas dedicadas a la revolucionaria idea de fantasia inconciente, asociada con la de objeto interno. La segunda parte -con abundantes referencias cruzadas y remisiones a los articulos de la primera parte, articuladas con las elaboraciones de conceptos kleinianos aportadas por discipulos de la brillante psicoanalista- incluye exposiciones de Bion, Segal, Money-Kyrle, Bick y Rosenfeld, entre otras, cada una con novedosos desarrollos de aspectos fundamentales de la teoria.

This illuminating and incisive textbook traces the development of work psychology and organizational behaviour from the early twentieth century to the present day. Far from being a conventional history of ideas, it is a demonstration of how each emerging school of thought has reflected the search for solutions to particular management problems, within specific social, political and economic contexts. Its primary focus is the relations among knowledge, power and practice. Hollway deftly documents the key developments in the field, from scientific management and industrial psychology, through the human relations movement, to such current concerns as organizational culture, leadership and human resources management. She examines their production within particular conditions and power structures. She charts the impact of each trend upon the emergence of new management tools, work practices and ways in which employee regulation is attempted. The book concludes with a projection of the likely future development of work psychology and organizational behaviour in the light of current changes in work and employer-employee relations. Work Psychology and Organizational Behaviour will be essential reading for teachers, students and practitioners in occupational psychology, organizational behaviour, industrial and organizational sociology, personnel and human resources management and public administration.

Social identity theory is one of the most influential approaches to identity, group processes, intergroup relations and social change. This book draws on Lacanian psychoanalysis and Lacanian social theorists to investigate and rework the predominant concepts in the social identity framework. Social Identity in Question begins by reviewing the ways in which the social identity tradition has previously been critiqued by social psychologists who view human relations as conditioned by historical context, culture and language. The author offers an alternative perspective, based upon psychoanalytic notions of subjectivity. The chapters go on to develop these discussions, and they cover topics such as: self-categorisation theory group attachment and conformity the minimal group paradigm intergroup conflict, social change and resistance Each chapter seeks to disrupt the image of the subject as rational and unitary, and to question whether human relations are predictable. It is a book which will be of great interest to lecturers, researchers, and students in critical psychology, social psychology, social sciences and cultural studies.

Método y medida en sociología de Aaron V. Cicourel es una revisión crítica de los fundamentos de la metodología cuantitativa en la investigación sociológica. Esta obra examina en profundidad el problema de la validez de las prácticas analíticas más usuales en sociología y de los supuestos epistemológicos y metodológicos en los que dichas prácticas se basan. Para Cicourel, la interacción entre teoría, método y datos puede resultar problemática, especialmente en lo que se refiere a las propiedades numéricas que la metodología cuantitativa imputa a los procesos sociales. No es sufi ciente utilizar para la investigación sociológica los instrumentos reconocidos y validados, sino que los datos obtenidos a través de ellos deben ser estudiados teniendo en cuenta el contexto etnográfico e interpersonal del que proceden. Transitando por diferentes ciencias sociales, este texto clásico plantea un análisis, siempre necesario, de los fundamentos teóricos que dan forma a las premisas y a la lógica de la investigación social.

Las décadas pasadas han contemplado un creciente interés por el lado subjetivo de la vida social, es decir, por el modo en que las personas se ven a sí mismas y a su mundo. De ahí que la situación requiera métodos descriptivos y holísticos: métodos cualitativos de investigación. A partir de este hecho, el presente libro trata sobre cómo conducir la investigación cualitativa. Cada vez hay más volúmenes y artículos que abordan enfoques cualitativos específicos, en especial la observación participante, perspicaces narraciones personales de ciertos investigadores de campo, y tratados sobre los fundamentos teóricos de la investigación cualitativa. Pero hasta ahora no existía ninguna obra sintética que proporcionara, a quienes no estén familiarizados con los métodos cualitativos, una perspectiva general de la gama de enfoques diferentes, y a la vez una guía sobre el modo de conducir realmente un estudio. La finalidad de este libro es cubrir esas carencias a partir de la propia experiencia de los autores como investigadores, de su perspectiva teórica y de sus conocimientos culturales acerca de cómo actuar en la vida cotidiana de manera que, a través de esas operaciones, la investigación cualitativa pueda llegar por fin a su mayoría de edad.

"This is an excellent collection at the cutting edge of thinking about qualitative research.... The breadth of coverage and the sophistication of the discussion make this an important addition to the increasing literature on qualitative work." - Jonathan Potter, Loughborough University "This book is likely to have a broad appeal to a rising generation of qualitative researchers seeking to relate theoretical debates to methodological practice." - Clive Seale, Goldsmiths College This exciting new book brings together contributions from world-leading scholars as well as younger researchers and focuses on cutting-edge issues related to the practice of qualitative research in the field. It provides a forum for contributors to discuss the issues and processes which inform qualitative research in its various forms as based on fieldwork experiences. In achieving this in an accessible manner to both practising students and researchers, it seeks to enable a dialogue over ideas and provide the reader with a `state of the art' overview of the topic from a contemporary perspective. Rather than being a `how to do' book, this volume should prove vitally useful for advanced students and researchers who wish to engage with those ideas and practices in terms of their applicability for an understanding and explanation of the place of qualitative research in the social sciences. It is also a forum in which leading scholars make an original contribution to the subject. Lively and highly readable throughout, Qualitative Research in Action will be essential reading for advanced undergraduates and above in a variety of disciplines, as well as researchers who wish to engage with contemporary ideas and practices in relation to qualitative research.
