Das Buch führt anhand konkreter Vorgehensweisen in die Diskussion und Praxis der Triangulation ein. Es zeichnet Ursprung und Geschichte des Konzepts sowie kritische Diskussionen nach. Triangulation sollte sich nicht in der reinen Verbindung von Methoden erschöpfen. Erst in der Verknüpfung deren theoretischer Hintergründe entfaltet sie ihr Potential. An praktischen Beispielen wird die Triangulation verschiedener qualitativer und von qualitativen mit quantitativen Methoden dargestellt. Ausgewählte Studien mit diesen Formen werden vorgestellt, um die Beurteilung des Nutzens und des Aufwandes von Triangulation zu erleichtern. Praktische Durchführungsprobleme von Triangulationsstudien werden als Leitfaden für Studierende behandelt. Die Bedeutung von Triangulation als Kriterium qualitativer Forschung, in der Verallgemeinerung und als Mittel der Erkenntnis wird an ihrer Verwendung in den unterschiedlichen Schritten des Forschungsprozesses verdeutlicht.

Der britische Polarforscher Ernest Shackleton und seine 27 Männer überlebten 1914 den Untergang des Schiffes «Endurance» im arktischen Packeis. Dass die Männer nach fast zweijährigem Überlebenskampf unter härtesten Bedingungen körperlich gesund und emotional stabil nach Hause zurückkehren konnten, war dem Krisenmanagement und der Führungskunst Shackletons zu verdanken. Er verwandelte eine Katastrophe in einen Triumph. Margot Morrell und Stephanie Capparell zeigen, wie Führungskräfte aus Wirtschaft, Forschung und Politik heute von Shackletons Erfahrung profitieren können.

Dieser Band ist ein Beitrag zu den jüngeren Bemühungen, diese viel zu enge Perspektive aufzuheben. Er zielt auf die Lebensgeschichten und Lebensverläufe von Menschen aus Afrika und dem Nahen Osten. Dabei stehen die biografischen und sozio-geschichtlichen Verflechtungen mit anderen Menschen und anderen gesellschaftlichen Gruppierungen im Mittelpunkt.

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.
