Abstract

This chapter considers the practice of "immersion ethnography" in terms of its contributions to knowledge, as well as its demands and its history as a methodology within social science. Four recent books are examined as illustrations of the technique: Mears' (2011) "Pricing Beauty," Ho's (2009) "Liquidated," Khan's (2011) "Privilege," and Zaloom's (2006) "Out of the Pits."
