This book provides a well written, clear and detailed account of QCA, highlighting the value of this research method for the analysis of social, political and psychological phenomena
Tereza Capelos

Schreier writes clearly and with authority, positioning QCA in relation to other qualitative research methods and emphasising the hands-on aspects of the analysis process. She offers numerous illuminating examples and helpful pedagogical tools for the reader. This book will thus be most welcomed by students at different levels as well as by researchers.

This book has been written for students but would be of value to anyone considering using the analysis method to help them reduce and make sense of a large volume of textual data. [...]The content is detailed and presented in text-book style with key points, definitions and beginners' mistakes scattered throughout and frequently asked questions and end of chapter questions. These break up the text but also help when skimming. In addition, and what I found particularly valuable, was the liberal use of examples drawn from published papers. These really help to clarify and bring to life the issues raised.

-- Nicola Singleton
Schreier provides several helpful educational tools, such as mid-chapter definitions, summaries and key-points....this is an excellent introductory or reference book for all students of content analysis -- Seth Fallik & JulhiAnn Francis
