Review: Giampietro Gobo (2008). Doing Ethnography

Stefan Thomas

Abstract


Doing Ethnography, by Giampietro GOBO, provides an introduction into ethnography from a practice perspective. The author discusses central topics, definitions, procedures, and reflections on the research process. The book thereby offers a thorough overview of the academic discourse on ethnographic research methods, along with a general outlook on recent developments at the cutting edge of methodological trends. Ethnography is elaborated through the integration of method into a constructivist research perspective.
