Institutional ethnography : a sociology for people by Dorothy E Smith ( Book )
8 editions published between 2005 and 2010 in English and held by 494 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Prominent sociologist Dorothy E. Smith outlines a method of inquiry that uses everyday experience as a lens to examine social relations and social institutions. Concerned with articulating an inclusive sociology that goes beyond looking at a particular group of people from the detached viewpoint of the researcher, this is a method of inquiry for people, incorporating the expert's research and language into everyday experience to examine social relations and institutions. The book begins by examining the foundations of institutional ethnography in women's movements, differentiating it from other related sociologies; the second part offers an ontology of the social; and the third illustrates this ontology through an array of institutional ethnography examples. This will be a foundational text for classes in sociology, ethnography, and women's studies."--BOOK JACKET

Management demanded workers' increased participation in evermore temporary and insecure labour.

These investigations provide valuable insights into the dramatic changes occurring within the Canadian steel industry."--pub. website
