"Other field researchers, who usually convey their craft only through one-on-one apprenticeships, should follow Whyte's lead and try to create their own vicarious apprenticeships through candid backstage accounts of their judgment calls in the field. . . . This book gives seasoned investigators an excuse to rethink what they take for granted and to see, step-by-step, how their practice compares with that of another seasoned person. Most people will welcome the chance to do this because of a final characteristic in this book, its even-handed tone." --Journal of Contemporary Ethnography "Useful for a better understanding of the character and promise of ethnographic research." --Journal of Communication "Goes beyond statements of principles to give a realistic picture of problems encountered by the field researcher." --Bulletin de Methodologie Sociologique A highly regarded field researcher tells how he has plied his craft for the past 50 years. William Foote Whyte, in collaboration with his wife, Kathleen, describes the successes--and failures--he has had in studying street corner society in Boston, oil companies in Oklahoma and Venezuela, restaurants in Chicago, worker cooperatives in Spain, factories in New York State, and villages in Peru. With the goal of taking readers into the field with him, Whyte discusses and dissects his chief tools--participant observation and the semistructured interview. He also explains how to evaluate and analyze field data, why the use of local history in social research is valuable, and the ethics of fieldwork. Whyte focuses on four general problems that have plagued his career as a researcher:

"The Committee on Human Relations in Industry was organized at The University of Chicago in 1943 by W. Lloyd Warner, chairman, Burleigh B. Gardner, executive secretary, and Robert J. Havighurst. The objective of the committee has been to carry on research in the social organization of industry and of our industrial society. This involves a study of the way in which factory and community mutually influence each other. We have also been investigating the problems of building cooperation within our industrial structure. The research data have been gathered through field observation and interviewing. Some of our research assistants have held full-time or part-time jobs in industry in order to explore that world through experience and observation. These students have kept detailed work diaries, which record day by day the significant human events of the work situation. Other students have carried on research within the factory or in the community through interviews and observation"--Introduction. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2010 APA, all rights reserved)
