O'Reilly K Ethnographic Methods New York: Routlege, 2005
Using case studies to "illustrate the dilelemmas and solutions that an ethnographic researcher may encounter", this book "guides the researcher from initial planning phases, through to analysis and write up". Topics include participant observation, qyualitative interviews, group interviews and visual data collection and analysis.
"Ethnography is not a prescribed set of methods – it is a methodology that acknowledges the complexity of human experience and the need to research it."
