"As qualitative research methods have gained status, interest in narrative analysis has also grown. This collection of essays reflects varying definitions for processes of interpreting variety of discourse as well as varying contexts of meaning. The editors highlight the usefulness of narrative analysis as a way to reveal relationships between individuals and societies. They also emphsize the developmental qualitites of narrative analysis: in terms of life journey, cultural tool over time, complexity, and skill acquisition." -- Lesley Farmer, California State University, Long Beach
