Being ethnographic : a guide to the theory and practice of ethnography [Monograph]
Madden, R. \ 2010
ethnography - customs - ethnic groups - ethnology - social differentiation - sociology - social research - field work

Full of practical ‘how to’ tips for applying theoretical methods - ‘doing ethnography’ - this book also provides anecdotal evidence and advice for new and experienced researchers on how to engage with their own participation in the field - ‘being ethnographic’. Being Ethnographic sets out the important definitions, methods and applications of field research while reinforcing the infinite variability of the human subject and addressing the challenges presented by ethnographers’ own passions, intellectual interests, biases and ideologies.

Ethnography : principles in practice [Monograph] - 3rd [thoroughly upd.] ed
Hammersley, M. \ Atkinson, P. \ 2007
ethnography - textbooks

Now in its third edition this introduction has been thoroughly updated and substantially rewritten. It offers a systematic introduction to ethnographic principles and practice. New material covers the use of visual and virtual research methods, hypermedia software and the issue of ethical regulation. There is also a new prologue and epilogue. The authors argue that ethnography is best understood as a reflexive process. What this means is that we must recognise that social research is part of the world that it studies. From an outline of the principle of reflexivity the authors go on to discuss and exemplify main features of ethnographic work, including: --- the selection and sampling of cases --- the problems of access observation and interviewing --- recording and filing data --- the process of data analysis and writing research reports. Throughout, the discussion draws on a wide range of illustrative material from classic and more recent studies within a global context.
