1 Vinay Kumar Srivastava (ed.)
Methodology and Fieldwork (Oxford in India Readings in Sociology and Social Anthropology, Gen Ed: T.R. Madan)
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2004; 0195667271 / 9780195667271; First Edition; Cloth; New; New; 
The Oxford in India Readings in Sociology and Social Anthropology comprise a set of volumes, each on an important theme or sub-area within these disciplines. Along with authoritative introductions and sectional prefaces, each book brings together key essays that apprise readers of the current debates and developments within that area, with specific reference to India. The volumes act both as introductions to sociology and social anthropology and as essential reference works for students, teachers and researchers. This reader provides a comprehensive and cross disciplinary account of research methodology, covering the character of social research, fieldwork, ethnography, and survey research as also the ethical and ideological issues involved in doing research. The contributions from well-known ethnographers and social scientists highlight the nature of social research, and conceptualize social reality and its dimensions. They discuss the importance of classification, the re le vance of compa-rison and restudy in social research, and the possibility of arriving as close as possible to the subject s point of view. In addition, the volume engages with ethnography and fieldwork, factors conditioning the choice of field area, comparison of fieldwork in rural and urban areas, the use of techniques in fieldwork and the improvisations needed, and finally the use of visuals in anthropological research.
