In the Field by Robert G. Burgess

I picked this book up at my landlord's free books library in their office. I am almost finished reading the first chapter. This is a good read for preparing to do my thesis research which is in the end, a bit like field research in a sociological tradition. I am both insider and outsider in my opinion. Although the thesis will mostly involve systems modeling and simulation and not be a sociology work. I should check out this book with some senior sociologists and see if it is a good book. Perhaps I could try to check a citation index perhaps Google Scholar will do for now.
