Critical Ethnography: Method, Ethics, and Performance

Front Cover
"Critical Ethnography represents the best of Professor Madison's work. As a fan of her written scholarship for a long time, I am pleased to see both this book and Madison's unique voice in it. Thanks to this text, our students will be better prepared for engaging others." John T. Warren, Bowling Green State University "Critical Ethnography is a rare and beautiful synthesis of deft theorizing and principled pragmatics. The complexities of ethnography demand a grasp of both theory and practice, but rarely have they come together so clearly and completely as in this passionately written text.
