"Research Methods in Anthropology" is a standard textbook for methods classes in anthropology programmes. Since the 1980s it has launched thousands of students into the field with its combination of rigorous methodological advice, wry humour, common sense advice, and numerous examples from actual field projects. Now the third edition of this textbook contains all the useful methodological advice of previous editions and more: additional material on text analysis, an expanded section on sampling in field settings, the use of computers for fieldwork and analysis, the pros and cons of rapid assessment techniques in anthropology, and dozens of new examples. This book teaches field methods to students coming from scientific, interpretive, or applied anthropological traditions. (source: Nielsen Book Data)
