The only collection of its kind on the market, this reader gathers the work of some of the most esteemed urban ethnographers in sociology and anthropology. Broken down into sections that cover key aspects of ethnographic research, Ethnography and the City will expose readers to important works in the field, while also guiding students to the study of method as they embark on their own work.

Richard E. Ocejo is Assistant Professor of Sociology at John Jay College of Criminal Justice of the City University of New York (CUNY), where he teaches research methods and urban sociology. His research uses ethnographic methods to analyze urban and community issues, culture, public space, and work in the contemporary city.

Review Text

  • By Amy G Dala on September 12, 2012

    This is more than a reader, it is a guide that uses a fantastic selection of classic articles (e.g., Gans, Bourgois, Whyte, Liebow, Stack) and 'new classics' (e.g., Lloyd, Pattillo, Duneier) that are given greater context and meaning by Ocejo. Students have the opportunity to read ethnographies, but learn about them. This would be great in an ethnography class, or in an urban class, where you can pair it with another kind of methodological source, like Logan & Molotch's Urban Fortunes or Wacquant's Urban Outcasts. An excellent resource.
