What's Wrong With Ethnography? Methodological Explorations

£60.00

Product description

Originally published in 1992, What's Wrong With Ethnography? provides a fresh look at the rationale for and distinctiveness of ethnographic research in sociology, education and related fields. Relativism, critical theory, the uniqueness of the case study and the distinction between qualitative and quantitative research are all examined and found wanting as a basis for informed ethnography. The policy and political implications of ethnography are a particular focus of attention. The author compels the reader to re-examine some basic methodological assumptions in an exciting way.

This is from a series of Routledge Revivals which is an initiative to re-issue a wealth of academic works which have long been unavailable from across the humanities and social sciences.

As new condition. Plasticised paper covered pictorial boards. No dust jacket.
