Editorial Reviews

Review

"This is the first book I have read that gives students a good grounding in the history of sociology as well as 'how to' instructions. I know my students will respond well to this book, and the examples will inspire them to take on the challenge of qualitative research themselves. . . . It is among the best such texts I have read in the last few years." --Margaret Walsh, Keene State College

"The strength of this book is the sophisticated and nuanced insight into the qualitative research process, particularly fieldwork. Moreover, it offers students a wide-ranging, current, and engaging discussion of the world of qualitative research. The examples chosen are appropriate and fascinating and the bibliography is excellent and comprehensive." --Deborah Little, Adelphi University

"Bravo! This is a hands-on and practical guide to qualitative methods and research that many students, and even seasoned researchers, will find useful. The authors strike a nice balance between discussing the issues surrounding qualitative methods and providing helpful, practical advice. The authors are to be commended for presenting qualitative methods as serious and rigorous methodologies in their own right. It is clear that they hold a deep passion for qualitative research, and are excellent advocates of qualitative methods." --Carrie Lee Smith, Millersville University

I used this book for an ethnography/field methods class and generally enjoyed it.
It's very informative, and lays out everything you would encounter while conducting field work or an ethnography in an easy to follow manner.
I originally rented it, but I think I'm going to buy it.
I will say this though, you definitely learn a lot more by doing out in the field than from any book you will ever use.
