This is an excellent idea to put under one cover so many useful research tips, references and the 'search terms'. I like the relevance of the coverage to the inter- and cross- disciplinary research.
Many interesting and important contribution to the ethnography. Gives good insight into different areas of ethnography.
This is an excellent resource for students at a range of stages in their research projects. It is written with clear communication in mind, and students are very positive about its impact on their confidence in adopting an ethnographic methodology for their research.
The Handbook of Ethnography offers something to every researcher - young or old - that is faced with the challenge of preparing and doing one of various types of ethnographic research. It can help to quickly build up essential knowledge on ethnography as a discipline and method and guide one towards more specific literature suited to ones research. The chapter on field notes is particularly helpful as it is an often neglected part of the practice of ethnography.
Good introduction into Ethnography. Interesting to use with netnography.
This is an outstanding collection that offers a complete practical overview of issues in doing ethnography. It is also an interdisciplinary text that thinks ethnography out of disciplinary bounds, yet through raising context-specific problems.
A comprehensive handbook that provides insight into ethnographical methods, theory and research. Provides an in-depth exploration of a large range of ethnographical approaches and key themes ideal for the first time and even the experienced researcher.
While developing interest among students to research into the practicalities of church and their localities, ethnographic matters are essential to understand. This books sets out and accomplishes a lot of the ground world for what a handbook on ethnography needs to be. It is perhaps a little beyond my BA students and may phase them but it should help those who persist in reading sections of it at least as a reference. The typeset is a little too close and dense for comfort of skim reading! Perhaps it is better for the PhD students!
A comprehensive and well considered Handbook that captures the essence of ethnographic research. Certainly a must- have in every library.
A very detailed, in-depth text for anyone wanting to know more about ethnography.
An excellent book on ethnographical methods, theory and research. Provides an in-depth exploration of a large range of ethnographical approaches and key themes and is highly recommended to students at all levels who wish to gain an invaluable introduction to Ethnography. Definitely a classic textbook in Ethnography!
This is an excellent book. I would definitely recommend to anyone who is reading at post-graduate level as is it very in-depth and theoretical.
This is an excellent book. I particularly enjoyed reading the chapter on 'Grounded theory in Ethnography'. Highly recommended!
This is an in-depth guide to ethnographic research which includes the underpinning epistemologies and a range of creative research methodologies that incorporate grounded theory and other methods within an ethnographic framework. Examples used are broad ranging and transdisciplinary. One constructive comment: The text is quite small and this may make it less of an attractive option for students with sight problems - is an electronic or larger text version available?
One of the classic textbooks in Ethnography. I would not know how to teach this subject without this volume.
Excellent book for all health professions and for all levels of research students. easy to read and understand
This edited collection is packed with chapters by leading authors and it explores a wide range of ethnographic approaches. It is an excellent resource for students; and for lectures and researchers in the field of social sciences; which I would highly recommend
The Handbook is a solid addition to any collection for students of ethnography. The broad range of articles address many of the key themes, histories and applications of ethnographic practice and highlight why it has remained an enduring tool for qualitative research.
The 'Handbook...' provides excellent coverage of important topics relating to ethnographic research. The contributors include a number of well-respected criminologists and social deviance researchers so this is an excellent resource for students undertaking intermediate level criminological research training.
The range of topics and issues covered in the edited chapters makes this an excellent text book to recommend for students. The fact that it covers both theoretical, methological and practice focused issues makes it especially helpful.
