Interrogating Ethnography

Why Evidence Matters

Steven Lubet

  • First and only book to test the accuracy of ethnography
  • Evaluates major ethnographies from the past thirty years
  • Provides recommendations for developing a more reliable "evidence-based" ethnography
  • Considers the themes that ethnography examines—urban crime, over-policing, the housing crisis, and the failures of the criminal justice system—and illuminates the importance of getting it right
