Making Sense of Stories: An Inquirer's Compendium

This book is an essential companion to The Story Cookbook, and provides a compendium of the varied and different ways stories can be analysed in research and inquiry. Drawing from a range of disciplines such as psychology, sociology and literature studies, this book is an invaluable guide for the researcher, consultant or professional keen to use storytelling as inquiry. Created itself as an iterative action inquiry, and sourced from an international assembly of contributors, the 29 chapters provide an array of ways to analyse stories including juxtaposition, circumambulation, strengths-analysis, grounded theory and thematic analysis approaches. Because of the detail in illuminating each analytical method, this book provides a rich diverse and valuable resource for making sense of stories.
