    Of course, debate begins with what the term ‘ethnography’ actually means. The problem is that, like many other methodological terms used by social scientists, ‘ethnography’ does not form part of a clear and systematic taxonomy. And, as a result, it is used in different ways on different occasions to mark off work of one kind from that. Collectively qualitative research is a group of methodologies, with each approach offering a different lens though which to explore, understand, interpret or explain phenomena in real word contexts and settings. This article will provide an overview of one of the many qualitative approaches, ethnography, and its relevance to healthcare. We will use an exemplar based on a study that used.

    Ethnography, like many other methodological concepts, has come to be a contested one. I have outlined here some of the debates that are taking place, and the problems that need to be resolved, if we are to make progress in methodological thinking about ethnography. Ethnography: practice, potential and problems. "Decolonizing Ethnography does not just critique colonialist academic practices, it seeks to do something different. Accessibly written, interesting, and effectively argued, [this book] will appeal to a wide range of readers interested in issues of migration, activism, ethnography.

      In over 30% of papers seminal methodological texts which could have informed methods were not cited. We believe this is the first in-depth methodological systematic review of meta-ethnography conduct and reporting. Meta-ethnography is an evolving approach. Current reporting of methods, analysis and synthesis lacks clarity and comprehensiveness. An excellent book on ethnographical methods, theory and research. Provides an in-depth exploration of a large range of ethnographical approaches and key themes and is highly recommended to students at all levels who wish to gain an invaluable introduction to Ethnography. Definitely a classic textbook in Ethnography!
