The Cultural Experience has helped generations of undergraduates discover the excitement of ethnographic research through participation in relatively familiar cultures in North American society. Grounded in the interviewing-based ethnographic technique known as ethnosemantics, the latest edition continues to treat ethnography as a discovery process. Students are taught how to set up an ethnographic field study, choose a microculture, and find and approach an informant, as well as how to ask ethnographic questions, record data, and organize and analyze what they have learned. Detailed instruction on how to write an ethnography is also provided. The guidelines are followed by ten short but substantive, well-written student ethnographies on such microcultures as exotic dancing, firefighting, pest extermination, and the work of midwives and police detectives. The Second Edition of this popular classroom volume has been expanded to include boxed inserts that offer suggestions to aid in the research process, new material on how to use observation and narratives with the ethnosemantic approach, greater emphasis on how to find cultural themes and adaptive challenges by analyzing ethnographic field data, and more extensive strategies for writing the final ethnographic paper. The latest edition also presents an expanded treatment of ethical responsibilities as well as a discussion of the significance of ethnographic research and its applications in the workplace.

A good very basic introduction to anthropology, with good examples.

I have used the earlier edition of this textbook twice in a college seminar for first-year students on ethnographic interviewing. The students liked the book because it is very *grounded*: They were easily able to get the point, and could find ways to apply those points in their own research.

I have seen the new edition, and I believe it is a nice improvement over the original-- it felt like lots of teaching-experience went into the revisions. The student papers in the new edition seem a little more current, and selected from a larger number of successful papers. I also remember being pleased with the inclusion of more materials on the ethical considerations of ethnographic research.

If you want to teach hands-on ethnographic method, this is an *excellent* place to start!

It is a bit dated with information, but still holds true. The ideas presented in this book are great for teachers and anyone dealing with the public. I encourage anyone who is interested in cross-cultural studies to read this book

This book was a requirement for my Fieldwork In Cultural Anthropology class. I wouldn't say the book was a great read, but it helped with my findings of microcultures.
