Summary "Essential Ethnographic Methods provides the reader with an introduction to participant and non-participant observation interviewing and ethnographically-informed survey research, including structured interviews and questionnaires. These are the basic building blocks of ethnographic data collecting, providing researchers with answers to the key ethnographic questions: what's happening in this setting?; who is engaging in what kind of activities with whom?; and what do they think they're doing?"--Jacket.
