Some notes, underlining and highlights throughout. 227 pp. including index. Brown covers with orange titling. Strong binding. "The Professional Stranger introduces an ethnographic perspective on the study of human life. Ethnography's goal is defined as the acquisition of an ability to interpret events as do members of some group. The perspective is further explored by contrasting ethnographyu with more traditional hypothesis testing approaches in the social sciences. Numerous examples are used, drawn for the most part from the author's field experiences in South India and with urban U.S. heroin addicts. While not intended as a methodological cookbook, several problems in ethnographic interfviewing and observation are discussed. Throughout, there is a concern with the difficult task of providing systematic documentation of key ethnographic conclusions."Trade Paperback. Good. 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall..
