There is a newer edition of this item:
`The book has a solid practical feel to it, and although it deals philosophically with leading theorists such as Foucault, Goffman, Bourdieu and Hall it grounds the practice of visual research into everyday use... Weaved cleverly throughout are numerous practical exercises which draw together the theoretical concepts and give them a grounded rational element. This book is a valuable research tool and I would anticipate that many researchers will find it a worthwhile addition to their armoury' - Mental Health Care
`This is a very useful book indeed for students; and a welcome reminder to academics about observational methods made unfashionable by ethics committees and critical ethnography' - Qualitative Research
`It is one of the best available textbooks on visual research methodology, particularly for those who are interested in anthropology and theoretical sociology' - A K Sinha, Sociological Bulletin
