About the Author

Robert E. Stake, PhD, University of Illinois (Emeritus)


'Stake offers a very detailed, honest, and perceptive account of the methodology of cross-case analysis, and the dilemmas of generating both the 'case' and the 'generalization.' ' - Research Professor Ian Stronach, Manchester Metropolitan University, Manchester, UK 'Researchers in education and social science have worried for decades over how to study multiple cases of the same phenomena and come up with viable conclusions. Robert Stake's careful analysis lays out the problems, the pitfalls, and the dangers of such an enterprise, and provides masterful, amply illustrated, easily understood, and reproducible solutions. All of us who study multiple sites will be grateful for this enormous gift, which analyzes and teaches simultaneously.' - Howard S. Becker, PhD, author of Writing for Social Scientists and Tricks of the Trade
