Description

"The writing is beautiful, the ideas persuasive, and the picture it paints of the process of careful observation is one that every writer should read...A rich and wonderful book." -American Journal of Education A landmark contribution to the field of research methodology, this remarkable book illuminates the origins, purposes, and features of portraiture-placing it within the larger discourse on social science inquiry and mapping it onto the broader terrain of qualitative research.
