Summary

How does one go about locating culture? What questions should one ask and how should they ask them? How does one write up the material? Which research methods should one use? This successful volume allows novice researchers to discover the excitement of ethnographic research through participation while it offers an approach that enables students to describe relatively familiar cultures. The chapters are intended to reflect basic steps and difficulties that make up the research process. Includes well-written, sample student mini-ethnographies on the American scene.
