Practicing social scientists present personal accounts of their ethnographic field research. In ten pages or less they speak of how they do their research, feel while they are doing it, become accepted by the people they wish to know, build and maintain relationships with their subjects, maintain objectivity, sort through their findings, and worry about the privacy of the friends they have made in the field.
