“It is a work of excellence … a bold, honest, frank, personal account of an anthropologist doing ethnography in a multitude of settings and circumstances. Shokeid confronts the many complexities of fieldwork and qualitative social science research. It is an important work in the tradition of critical and public anthropology that should find a place in the curricula of every social science graduate program.” • Jeffrey David Ehrenreich, University of New Orleans


Based on several long-term fieldwork projects in Israel and the Unted States, this book brings together a repertoire of subjective and professional experiences of an anthropologist who attended various theoretical and methodological tutoring settings. That varied panorama of research milieus, ethnographic field sites, and diverse personal engagements, has offered a wide perspective on the complex craft of anthropology. Moreover, it sometimes placed the author in unexpected situations that challenged some habitually accepted modes of personal conduct as well as ethnographic research norms and paradigms, expanding the arena and terms of the anthropological assignments and the record of ethnographic works.

Moshe Shokeid is Professor Emeritus of Anthropology at Tel Aviv University. His major publications include A Gay Synagogue in New York (Columbia University Press, 1995; University of Pennsylvania Press, 2003) and Can Academics Change the World? (Berghahn, 2020).
