Through accounts of their lives and work in varied cultural settings, the authors describe the many forms fieldwork can take, the kinds of questions anthropologists ask, and the common problems they encounter. From these accounts and the experiences of their students, 'In the Field' makes a powerful case for the value of the anthropological approach to knowledge.
