"A clear and concise introduction to the issues faced when preparing, conducting and presenting anthropological research. For students, the book might serve as a pre-emptive strike against many common problems, as well as a companion to the joys of conducting good research." - Edward Simpson, School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London, UK

"This volume by experienced anthropologists offers a wealth of sound, succinct advice on how to plan and conduct ethnographic fieldwork, how to organize and analyze information, and how to write up coherently. Aspiring anthropologists should ignore this book at their peril." - Olaf H. Smedal, University of Bergen, Norway

"The volume contains a revealing and concise compilation of issues relevant for conducting a research project and is a good companion throughout the overall progress. Its strength lies in the authors' experiences as teachers and supervisors of student research projects across many areas of social and cultural anthropology. Hence, the book succeeds in sketching many of the highs and lows, the dilemmas and challenges that students are likely to face while carrying out research. To conclude, it can be said that Doing Anthropological Research is a valuable read for students who are preparing, conducting, and writing an anthropology research project." - Claudia Konrad, University of Trier, Germany
