    Oxford University Press 2014; US$ 47.95 US$ 41.24

    The Urban Ethnography Reader assembles the very best of American ethnographic writing, from classic works to contemporary research, and aims to present ethnography as social science, social history, and literature, rather than purely as a methodology.

    I.B.Tauris 2014; US$ 14.95

    Since the revolution in 1979, the Islamic Republic of Iran has permitted few Western scholars to conduct research in the country. Here Julia Huang provides a remarkable account of local tribal life in Iran and depicts a community largely beyond the scope and reach of foreign travellers and the Western media. Huang documents the difficult livelihoods... more...
