Shadows in the Field was the first book by ethnomusicologists to consider fieldwork as an issue-laden practice, rather than as a methodology requiring a prescriptive manual. The authors in this revised second edition challenge the very notion of fieldwork, its goals, the nature of knowledge gained in fieldwork, and the place of fieldwork in historical studies. Shadows in the Field proposes new perspectives on fieldwork for all ethnographic-driven disciplines, such as ethnomusicology, anthropology, sociology, folklore, area studies and linguistics
