Featuring a range of fascinating and thought-provoking case studies from the authors’ extensive experience in the field, this is the first textbook to cover ethnography specific to criminology.
Following the research process in full, Treadwell and Wakeman successfully bridge the gap between a methodological instruction manual and a theoretical textbook. The book:
- Includes case studies comprised of classic works and the authors’ own ethnographic projects
- Provides guidance for navigating key issues in ethnography, including access and researcher safety
- Helps with the use of ethnographic methods with exercises, questions and checklists
- Features a range of extra learning features including key terms, a glossary, and further reading suggestions
Criminological Ethnography: An Introduction is a valuable resource for any student embarking on ethnographic research in criminology for the first time.
