Observation is one of the foundational methods of qualitative inquiry-but only if it is conducted in a systematic fashion that allows for the careful recording of data and the consistent retrieval of those data for purposes of analysis. To that end, this book features a brief how-to guide to conducting observations in naturalistic settings. The history of observational research, ongoing questions of its epistemological status, the impact of new technologies, and its major ethical concerns are also treated. Replete with examples of observation-based research, questions for class discussion, a glossary, and extensive references, this volume offers a rapid fire start into doing naturalistic observational research for novices and students.

"In this introduction to methods in ethnographic research, Angrosino (anthropology, U. of South Florida) clearly explains the qualitative approach's principles, varieties, ethics, practical and current issues (e.g., the Internet as a research resource, 'insider' observers, and the trend to study other than 'sluts, nuts, and perverts' and other marginalized people). The text includes discussion questions, photos from the author's fieldwork in Trinidad, and a glossary." Book News, Inc."
