Rather than offer descriptions of cases or short three paragraph samples, this book provides readers with full cases drawn from a variety of disciplines that illustrate different case study techniques (descriptive, explanatory, cross-case and methodological). Throughout the text, the author provides thoughtful insights and guidelines on the cases and the different approaches to doing case study research.
