Ethnographically Speaking consists of a collection of papers presented at the 'Millennium Annual Stone Symposium' sponsored by the Society for the Study of Symbolic Interaction. . . . The book does indeed provide for the exposing underlying problems of research participants, which are shared by others in the larger society. . . . The book opens the doors of many closed closets in academia and is to be applauded for that.
