'A clear demonstration of a range of ethnographic research techniques that offer a profound understanding of the subjects of the investigations and will undoubtedly stimulate many considering some form of research to assess carefully the advantages of ethnographic techniques for use in their own work' - Evaluation and Research in Education Ethnographic Research presents, in a single volume, a selection of ten recently published studies intended to illustrate the variety of social research which is currently being conducted within the ethnographic tradition. Together with an accompanying editorial introduction and a carefully selected range of Guided Reading Exercises, this text should provide students with a solid grounding of the different underlying assumptions, researchers' positions, methods of data collection and theoretical approaches within this broadly defined research tradition. The collection includes research from a range of different countries (Britain, The USA, Australia, Lebanon and India) and studies from a multitude of disciplines and contexts including work, policing, race and the environment. Consequently it should serve as an invaluable teaching resource on research methods courses across the social sciences, and in many neighbouring disciplines. The collection will be essential reading for undergraduate and postgraduate students on research methods courses, and more generally for students who are required to carry out empirical research as a core component on a wide variety of courses.
