Reviews

LeCompte & Schensul's Ethnographer's Toolkit is a classic methods text in applied anthropology. The authors combine highly accessible writing, extremely pertinent examples, and a grounded approach to social inquiry that is both creative and versatile. The new edition of the introductory book in the series, Designing and Conducting Ethnographic Research, represents a substantial revision of the previous edition. This edition includes new discussions of the influence of ethnicity and power, expanded entries on design and analysis, and greater emphases on team and partnership building. This text is highly recommended for both graduate and undergraduate students in anthropology and related disciplines... -- Susan Greenbaum, University of South Florida This is an excellent book. It is comprehensive, balanced, and thoughtfully written, with frequent examples from a range of disciplines that bring the text to life. The many definitions and cross references are quite helpful. It includes the best description of various research paradigms, epistemologies, and designs I have seen. -- Janette Klingner, University of Colorado, Boulder Designing and conducting ethnographic research has never made so much sense. In this first volume, LeCompte and Schensul untangle the messiness of ethnographic research in a dynamic yet evident and comprehensive way. With accessible language, relevant examples, and easy-to-adapt checklists and models, this remarkable introduction to the Ethnographer's Toolkit series, now in its second edition, will become a favorite among researchers of all levels and across disciplines. This book provides incomparable insight on an array of research paradigms and topics, resulting in a great resource for those interested in community and institutional ethnographic research, as well as those looking to increase community participation and more democratic knowledge production. -- Federico Cintron-Moscoso, University of South Florida LeCompte & Schensul's Ethnographer's Toolkit is a classic methods text in applied anthropology.
