Format: Paperback
Brewer has marvellously taking the reader into ethnographic world. Starting with the theoretical background of ethnography, he is elegantly describing the development of Ethnography as a field and historical and contemporary theoretical analysis of the subject. Also, he explains interpretation and analysis of ethnographic data. At the end, reader who was novel to ethnography would become an expert capable in designing and conducting such study. However, it would be much useful, if he brief about the Nvivo which is common data analysing software. What I found interesting feature in this book is, the reader can understand the theoretical positioning of "ethnography" as a field in relation to other methods, as a result reader can defend `ethnography' from critics.

This is an excellent book, however, upon opening said book; I discovered that It was printed upside down. This is no issue but I just thought it was worth telling people about it. I think it's quite quirky if I'm honest.
