About the Author:

Harry F. Wolcott (1929-2012) was professor emeritus in the Department of Anthropology at the University of Oregon and a leading author in anthropology and research methods. Wolcott's major works include anthropological studies of American education: Teachers Versus Technocrats and The Man in the Principal's Office: An Ethnography. He also wrote extensively on fieldwork and writing: Transforming Qualitative Data; The Art of Fieldwork; Ethnography: A Way of Seeing; and Writing Up Qualitative Data and is the author of the more recent Sneaky Kid and Its Aftermath: Ethics and Intimacy in Fieldwork (all published by AltaMira Press).

Review:

Far more than a how-to-do-it handbook, The Art of Fieldwork offers a rich, engaging discourse drawing from a lifetime of personal experiences. (Donald A. Ritchie, associate historian, U.S. Senate Historical Office; author of Doing Oral History Routledge Studies In Memory and Narrative)

This is a fine introduction to the perils and pleasures of fieldwork. Broad, eclectic, and open, it deals with questions of both epistemology and technique straightforwardly and without pretension. (Leslie Salzinger American Journal of Sociology)
