Description/Abstract

Recently, Hammersley (What's Wrong with Ethnography: Routledge: 1992) and Silverman ( Interpreting Qualitative Data: 1993) have de-emphasised the distinction between qualitative and quantitative research and suggested to integrate them to make social science more valid. I argue that the management accounting research ahould be aware of that debate, but that the resort to "little tables" which intersperse the qualitative analysis with simple, supportive statistics is a second best option for this field
