Doing Fieldwork in China
Editor: Heimer, Maria; Thøgersen, Stig;
Doing fieldwork inside the PRC is an eye-opening but sometimes also deeply frustrating experience. In this volume scholars from around the world reflect on their own fieldwork practice to give practical advice and discuss more general theoretical points. The contributors come from a wide range of disciplines such as political science, anthropology, economics, media studies, history, cultural geography, and sinology. The book also contains an extensive bibliography.

Contributors: Bu Wei, Björn Gustafsson, Mette Halskov Hansen, Baogang He, Maria Heimer, Björn Kjellgren, Li Shi, Kevin J. O’Brien, Dorothy J. Solinger, Maria Svensson, Elin Sæther, Mette Thunø, Stig Thøgersen, Emily T. Yeh.

"Essential reading for graduate students planning fieldwork in China. It brings out in the open information usually shared informally, and has lessons for students about theory, methods, and about China in these very personal cases." —Asian Anthropology (6, 2007)
