At last, an accessible, authoritative, non-nonsense guide to the key concepts in one of the most widely used methodologies in social science: Ethnography.
- Covers and summarises the basic and related issues in ethnography that are covered nowhere else in a single text
- It is an outstanding teaching and research resource which examines topics like 'sampling' and 'generalising' as well as embracing new fields such as virtual, visual and multi-sighted ethnography.
- Time-honoured themes such as key informants, access, participant observation and rapport are here as well as key contemporary issues such as reflexivity, writing and ethics.
- Each concept is presented comprehensively yet critically, with relevant examples.
This is not quite an encyclopaedia but far more than a dictionary. It is comprehensive yet brief. It is small and neat, easy to hold and flick through. It is what students and researchers have been waiting for.
