The Knowledge is in the Telling

Excellent resource describing the activities of a scholar-practitioner.
Good distinction between an action researcher and a field researcher, highlighting the usefulness and limitations of analytic induction.

References the dramaturgical approach,- drama as a tool for inquiry- and the importance of iterative story telling.

Also has a description of the use of the narrative vignette device.
