Although articles reporting research studies are helpful in acquainting students with methodological approaches, they often make the process look so straightforward, clean, and effortless. It is rare to find an article that tells the "real" story behind the finished product. By having real researchers tell their own stories of "mucking around" with methodological and ethical issues in qualitative research, we get a more realistic, human story of the process. This is a collection of such stories. Authors were asked to describe their own experiences with methodological and ethical struggles as they engaged in their work. Each of the essays offers insight into the research approach used as well as particular issues which became apparent during the research process. Key issues raised by the authors include early learnings; gaining entry; overlapping, conflicting roles, and the boundaries of these roles; differential power relationships; who tells the story and whose story is told; ethical concerns related to confidentiality; and the influence of a researcher's particular philosophy or theoretical framework on his or her research. Throughout the book we see scholars whose personal stories or autobiographies intersect closely with their research projects. deMarrais introduces a unique framework to help students gain an overview of qualitative research methods and the underpinnings and processes in these approaches. This framework is centered on the ways we understand phenomena using qualitative research approaches that engage archival knowledge, narrative knowledge, or observational knowledge.

This book explores what is meant by claims of religious understanding and truth. It argues that at the end of the twentieth century we are undergoing a revolution in our thinking about ourselves and our place in nature, and that the worldview pervading modern culture is dissolving because it has marginalized and hindered authentic religious understanding and practice. It has spiritually degraded and destroyed the natural environment upon which it depends. The book describes how this situation developed, and proposes an alternative postmodern, narrative concept of religious understanding that may help us to transcend these spiritual and ecological problems. This model of religious truth explores a new cosmological story that has emerged over the past twenty-five years. It is a story that will enrich and deepen our spiritual experience while helping us cope with possibly the most disastrous and dangerous consequence of modernity—the present worldwide ecological crisis.

The Rorschach records of these graduate students in clinical psychology are presented along with their own interpretations and analyses of their records.

'In the beginning there was Syd Field. Then came McKee and Vogler. Now there is Dara Marks. Marks has long ranked among the top screenwriting theorists, now her teachings are available to everyone.' Creative Screenwriting 'Offers fresh insights into screenwriting structure, enabling writers to hone their craft and elevate their art.' Prof Richard Walter, UCLA Screenwriting Chairman 'This is a book you can read with each script you write, as both guide and inspiration.' Lisa Loomer, Screenwriter, Girl Interrupted and The Waiting Room 'Destined to become a classic.' Scriptwriter magazine Inside Story offers the most important advancement in screenwriting theory to come along in years. This innovative method for structuring a screenplay is designed to keep writers focused on the heart and soul of their story so that plot, character and theme create a unified whole. Marks' method offers an easy to follow template for story construction, helping the writer to identify what the story is actually about: the thematic intention. It then uses the internal character development of the protagonist as a vehicle to drive the thematic intention and the line of action within the story.
