This timely collection constitutes essential reading for all organizational ethnographers interested in the ways in which their discipline is developing. Although it will primarily be used for reference on the basis of individual chapters, this is a well crafted text which maintains a strong narrative throughout Organization Journal
Adopted for a course at the Copenhagen Business School.
Highly useful for Masters of Research and DBA students undertaking organisational ethnographies
thought provoking book
Like ethnography, this book is a rich resource that includes many war stories and impressions from the field about doing qualitative research in organizations. It is a collection of short essays from many leading scholars and highly acclaimed researchers.
Some good case studies in this book. Useful for students to see how organisations work and how to find out what actually happens inside them.
I will recommend the book to those of my students who are preparing for fieldwork in formal organizations.
As for general comment, I would say it is a very welcome book (in the Netherlands so many "organizational sociologists" have never set a foot in an actual organization - except their research institute -), and I will make references to it in my class, even probably have students read one chapter from it.
I really like the book and find it highly useful, both for my own purposes as well as for my students.
Vary clear book helping the novice researcher step by step
