20 editions published in 1992 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,549 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Examining the wide range of feminist research methods, Shulamit Reinharz explains the relationship between feminism and methodology, and challenges existing stereotypes. Concluding that there is no one correct feminist method, but rather a variety of perspectives, Reinharz argues that this diversity of methods has been of great value to feminist scholarship. With an extensive bibliography cataloguing the important work accomplished over the last two decades, Feminist Methods in Social Research is an essential resource for students of sociology and women's studies

Observing the observer : understanding our selves in field research by Shulamit Reinharz( Book )

8 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 250 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

""Obserring the Obserrer makes an important contribution to the literature on social seience methodology by foeusing on the process of conducting field research and how this process shapes our findings (and ourselves). The book fills an important gap in this literature by not only highlighting various nuts-and-bolls aspects of carrying out field research but also by bringing in a personal perspective to the process."--Melanie Cammell, Harvard University" ""Several sections are quile unique to the literature on qualitative research (e.g., the sections on motherhood and fieldwork and on absent selves) and will make a significant and very useful contribution. The book raises issues that are not addressed in any other methodological text I have seen."--Cynthia Miller-Idriss, New York University" ""Observing the Observer is the best discussion of the self in fieldwork that I have read, without a doubt."---Linda Grant, University of Georgia" "Ethnography or participant observation research has been performed since the early nineteenth century and is now one of the most common ways for field researchers to gain an in-depth understanding of social life. In Observing the Observer: Understanding Our Selves in Field Research---the only book that covers the issue of "reflexivity," in field research---author Shulamit Reinharz provides a captivating analysis of her yearlong stay in Israel, where she engaged in a study of aging on a kibbutz. Exploring the issue of "reflexivity," this unique volume focuses on the key tool in fieldwork---the self. It discusses how the many facets of the self (or "selves") of a researcher---research selves, personal selves, and situational selves---can affect how research is enacted and reported on. The book addresses many of the current debates on fieldwork, especially those that have arisen in the feminist literature. Ideal for graduate courses in qualitative research methods, ethnographic methods, or ethnography, Observing the Observer can also be used in upper-level undergraduate courses on qualitative methods."--Jacket
Jewish intermarriage around the world by Sergio Della Pergola( Book )

6 editions published between 2009 and 2017 in English and held by 234 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Most research on intermarriage between Jews and non-Jews focuses on the United States. This volume takes a path-breaking approach, examining countries with smaller Jewish populations so as to better understand countries with larger Jewish populations. It focuses on intermarriage in Great Britain, France, Scandinavia, the Soviet Union, Mexico, Venezuela, Canada, South Africa, Australia, Argentina and Curacao, then applies the findings to the United States. In earlier centuries such a volume might have yielded much diff erent conclusions. Then Jews lived in more countries, intermarriage was not as prevalent, and social science had little to contribute. Before World War II, the Jewish population was dispersed much diff erently, and it continues to shift around the world because of both push and pull factors. Like demography, intermarriage is a dynamic process. What is true today was probably not true in the past, nor will it be true tomorrow. The contributors to this volume locate new forms of Jewish family life--single parents, gay/lesbian parents, adults without children, and couples with multiple backgrounds. These multiple family forms raise a new question--what is a Jewish family--as well as a variety of related issues. Do women and men have diff erent roles in intermarriage? Does a family need two people to raise children? Should there be patrilineal descent? Where do adoption, single parenting, lesbian and gay identities, and more, fit into the picture? Broadly, what role does the family play in transmitting a group's culture from generation to generation? This volume presents a portrait of Jewish demography in the twenty-first century, brilliantly interweaving global processes with significant local variations."--Provided by publisher
