Research Methods in Anthropology is the standard textbook for methods classes in anthropology programs. Over the past dozen years, it has launched tens of thousands of students into the field with its combination of rigorous methodology, wry humor, commonsense advice, and numerous examples from actual field projects. Now the fourth edition of this classic textbook is ready, written in Russ Bernard's unmistakable conversational style. It contains all the useful methodological advice of previous editions and more: additional material on text analysis, an expanded section on sampling in field settings, the use of computers for fieldwork and analysis, the pros and cons of rapid assessment techniques in anthropology, dozens of new examples, and an expanded bibliography. 'Methods belong to all of us' is the watchphrase of this book. Whether you are coming from a scientific, interpretive, or applied anthropological tradition, your students should learn field methods from the best guide around.
