Reviews qualitative methodology: its strengths, application, and its potential weaknesses. A comprehensive range of qualitative techniques is reviewed, and three main issues are highlighted for their proper treatment: framing the area of investigation, the use of macro‐qualitative techniques, and epistemological issues of causality, induction, case selection, and level of explanation.

Keywords:   epistemology, framing, political science, qualitative methods
