What People are Saying About This

Norman K. Denzin

...Ellis and Bochner establish the need, importance and centrality of new forms of qualtiative writing for interpretive ethnography . . . [establishing] autoethnographies, sociopoetics, and reflexive texts as central points of reference for innovative ethnographic practice in the next century. There is much to be learned from these important exemplars. -- (Norman K. Denzin, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign)
