Рецензия на книгу: Hilary Pilkington, Elena Omel’chenko, and Al’bina Garifzianova. Russia’s Skinheads: Exploring and Rethinking Subcultural Lives. London: Routledge, 2010

This review highlights the contribution of the authors to urban ethnography and tactics of qualitative sociological research. This book fills the gap in urban ethnography of Russian cities and discovers very special groups of urbanites (skinheads) and their everyday practices. The review emphasizes the significance of the long-term ethnographic research conducted by the authors in the age of “do it fast” studies. It also supports the efforts of the authors to analyze the atmosphere and the relations within the team during field research as an important part of shared experience and the special optics influencing the perception of the researchers.
