The Ethnographic Imagination : Textual Constructions of Reality, Hardback Book

The Ethnographic Imagination : Textual Constructions of Reality Hardback



First published in 1990, The Ethnographic Imagination explores how sociologists use literary and rhetorical conventions to convey their findings and arguments, and to 'persuade' their colleagues and students of the authenticity of their accounts.

Looking at selected sociological texts in the light of contemporary social theory, the author analyses how their arguments are constructed and illustrated, and gives many new insights into the literary convention of realism and factual accounts.
