This four-volume Major Work mines the extensive research of the past few decades into textual analysis. The set's esteemed team of editorshave collated seminal papers which consider the key difference between content analysis and textual analysis, the conceptual starting point and the logic and the attitude of the research process, as well as exploring the tension between reading a text and using a text, amongst other key issues. With experienced and respected figures in the field at the helm, the carefully selected papers in this collection are put into context and analysed in a newly-written introductory chapter which charts the developments and looks to the future of the field. Volume One: Basic philosophical considerations Volume Two: Modalities of textual work Volume Three: Reading Text Volume Four: Using Text
