CHOICE Review

This 753-page volume, now in its third edition, is the standard for anthropology students and researchers alike and offers valuable information and advice to all social scientists interested in research methods and analysis. Written in a thoughtful, conversational style, it provides the reader with information on fieldwork preparation and the collection and analysis of data as well as many of the tools necessary to carry out such fieldwork. The book begins by placing anthropology within the social sciences framework and offers students both an introduction to social research vocabulary and to conducting a literature search. That is followed by 20 chapters on research design, sampling, interviewing, scales, participant observation, fieldnotes, direct and indirect observation, and discussions of qualitative, univariate, bivariate, and indirect analyses. Five appendixes include important tables for conducting quantitative analyses; the sixth is a list of resources for field-workers, from professional organizations' codes of ethics to journals that publish articles on research methods. A 40-page list of references and extensive subject and author indexes complete the volume. An absolute must for all libraries, classrooms, and individuals interested in this subject matter. M. R.
