Reviews

"A unique addition to the growing catalog of texts about qualitative method. It discusses, in rich detail, research strategies which all qualitative researchers, not just those doing full-fledged educational biographies, will want to make part of their methodological repertoire. The book is also a model of what a good methodology text should look like. It both grapples with provocative intellectual questions associated with doing research and provides the sort of nitty-gritty procedural details which all researchers need." -- Robert Donmoyer, Editor, Educational Researcher, Ohio State University

"With publication of this comprehensive and superbly written collection to serve as both guide and validating footnote, 'educational biography'-biographical research into the lives of educators past and present-Now assumes its rightful and legitimate place among the major approaches to qualitative inquiry." -- Harry Wolcott, University of Oregon

"This is an extremely important work which adds significantly to our understanding of biography both as a tool in educational research and as a unique genre in its own right. It will be a great source of enlightenment for educators, biographers, and students of biography." -- Stephen B. Oates, Paul Murray Kendall Professor of Biography and Professor of History, University of Massachusetts, Amherst
