Quick Ethnography takes traditional anthropological fieldwork techniques and applies them to contemporary applied research problems. For most applied projects, time is of the essence, and QE shows how ethnographic work can be successfully accomplished in a matter of weeks. Handwerker guides the reader through the use of research teams, highly focussed research problems, and a variety of structured techniques. This book will be a valuable reference for fieldworkers in anthropology and sociology, and other applied social science fields.
