Field Projects in Anthropology: A Student Handbook

Building on the success of previous editions, this latest edition continues to offer readers a very practical, down-to-earth approach to the methods and key issues involved in dong ethnographic research. Although not intended as a complete manual of field techniques, it does present a series of fourteen projects that represent some of the most common data collection techniques used by anthropologists. In carrying out the projects, readers learn something about how and when to apply such techniques, or variants of them, in the field situation. The authors' clear and useful guidelines are a welcome rite of passage to developing this field experience. Imaginable, practical, versatile and stimulating, this edition maintains the unique coverage of topics, illustrative approach, and succinctness that has made it a widely read book for nearly two decades. Most importantly, Field Projects in Anthropology, 3/E motivates readers to learn about other cultures and to develop new perspectives about their own. The projects are clearly written, short enough and varied enough to hold the reader's attention, and to the point. They are also versatile, allowing sufficient leeway to modify or amplify the method to suit individual research needs.
