The ethnographic experience is an indelible venture that continuously redefines one's life. Bringing together important cross-currents in the national debate on education, this book introduces the student or practitioner to the challenges, resources, and skills informing ethnographic research today. From the first chapter describing the cultural foundations of ethnographic research, by George Spindler, the book traces both traditional and new approaches to the study of schools and their communities.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Provide readers with an overview of the research trajectory followed by particular researchers and the intersection of theory, method, advocacy, and the role of self and other in critical ethnography. * Anthropology & Education Quarterly *
A challenging and enjoyable read. The rich mix of theory, research, and practice makes excellent material for reflection by experienced and novice researchers alike. * Journal of Anthropological Research *
A rich discussion of critical ethnography that gives researchers the basis on which they can develop critical ethnographic studies within the framework delineated by these authors without falling into some of the pitfalls they identify. * British Educational Research Journal *
This collection of essays is impressive for the range of approaches to ethnography that it covers, from classic interpretive ethnography through critical ethnography to action research. An additional benefit is a set of reviews, from divergent perspectives, of the intellectual history of critical social theory in relation to critical ethnography. -- Frederick Erickson, George F. Kneller Professor of Anthropology of Education, University of California, Los Angeles
