About this product
- DescriptionUrban ethgraphy is one of the oldest traditions of American social science and has helped define how we think about cities and city dwellers since its inception in the early twentieth century. Renewed interest in urban poverty, the immigrant experience, and gentrification among the public and scholars alike has focused attention on qualitative methods in the social sciences, and the field of urban ethgraphy in particular receives more attention w than at any point since its inception. The Urban Ethgraphy Reader assembles the very best of American ethgraphic writing, from classic works to contemporary research, and aims to present ethgraphy as social science, social history, and literature alongside its traditional place as methodology. In addition to an original introduction that highlights the importance and development of the field, Kasinitz, Duneier, and Murphy also provide introductions to each section of the book. The section introductions will cover the period's historical events and how they influenced the study of the city, the major themes and preoccupations of ethgraphy, what was happening in the social sciences as a whole, and how the excerpts chosen fit into the larger work in which they were originally published. A valuable companion to a wide range of courses on cities across the social sciences, The Urban Ethgraphy Reader captures the diversity, the historical development, and the continuing importance of the ethgraphic approach to understanding American communities.
