The Third Edition of the best-selling Ethnography: Step-By-Step guides readers in managing mountains of ethnographic data and making meaningful statements based on that data. The second edition provided coverage of a then "new frontier"-the Internet. This new edition builds on that coverage and offers an up-to-date discussion of technology in ethnography, covering a range of topics from technological tools to research with virtual communities. Other notable additions to this updated classic include increased coverage of ethics in ethnography and updated examples and references from a broader range of fields, so as to represent the landscape of ethnography today.
Popular with readers for its friendly and accessible approach, this new edition will be an indispensable resource for doing ethnographic research. It is especially well suited for courses in ethnography, qualitative research methods, and social research methods.
"Overall, I found the text to be highly enjoyable, and feel that Fetterman is able to convey material in a noteworthy manner that will appeal to both novice and experienced ethnographic researchers. I very much recommend this book as an introductory guide to conducting ethnographic research, and I believe that others will find it as practical and valuable as I have." -- The Qualitative Report
