Qualitative researchers are increasingly concerned with issues relating to writing up their studies and creating a new ethnography where the author's voice, as well as those of their participants, are more fully realized for the reader. This volume, a significant expansion of a special issue of the journal <B><I>Qualitative Sociology</I></B><I></I>, presents an array of contemporary ethnographers grappling with the problematics and new conventions of ethnographic writing.
