About the Author

Paul Willis is Professor of Social and Cultural Studes at Wolverhampton University. He is also the Founding Editor of the journal Ethnography.


"Willis is at his best in this book when he turns to the data from his 30 years of ethnographic experience. He makes frequest reference to his observations in both Learning to Labor and the 1990, Common Culture, so that readers not yet acquainted with these works will not be at a disadvantage. Indeed, his observations are often so insightful that even those who have read one or both books might be tempted to take them up again." Methodology and Research Techniques "Willisa book is an intriguing attempt to pose questions about doing ethnography in our post--industrial a leisure societiesa ... it presents some genuinely interesting insights and ethnographic vignettes."
