Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book titled Thick Comparison contains the table of contents, foreword, and notes on contributors. The book is not a step-by-step guide to good comparison or qualitative best practice. Rather, it investigates the process of producing comparability. The book is a display and discussion of attempts to use ethnographic methods in order to build objects of comparison and relate them to each other as a means of improving analytical clarity. It serves as an invitation to compare thickly as it revitalises the articulation work inherent in analytical ethnographies.

Keywords: ethnographic method; Thick Comparison
