Summary

Book Two of the Ethnographer's Toolkit series provides the reader with an introduction to participant and non-participant observation, interviewing, and ethnographically informed survey research, including systematically administered structured interviews and questionnaires. These essential methods are the basic building blocks of ethnographic data collection, providing researchers with tools to answer the principal ethnographic questions: ''What's happening in this setting?''; ''Who is engaging in what kind of activities?''; and ''Why are they doing what they're doing?'' The authors describe when and how to use these basic techniques and offer numerous examples of how these methods have worked in practice. Checklists, extended case studies, definitions, and cross-references aid the reader in understanding these methods.
