qualitative research?

Me again!

I'm taking a course on Qualitative Research this semester, and we have to
find a couple full-length book studies to read on our own. Didn't like the
options the prof provided (mostly about feminist issues), and was
contemplating what other issues which quality ethnographies have been
written. Then, my boyfriend suggested, "why not a book on all the
alternative school stuff you're interested in." Dah! Why didn't I think
of that!

Now, my question: Of all these books you've mentioned on this "book list"
in the last couple months, are there any that are systematic/analytic
studies of specific people or groups (not just one person's ideas), for
example: case studies or life histories where an outside researcher takes
time to interview, observe, etc. and then analyze rich sources of "data"
from theoretical perspectives?

TIA!
