From Kitaohji Shobo Website (http://www.kitaohji.com/books/2730_3.html (Japanese))
Beyond viewpoints of human relations in fieldwork or qualitative study in which "researchers" and "persons who are being studied" exist, this book discusses conditions of an "area" where there is no strict dichotomy underlying between them by examining such "places" as the social device, setting and system. It also questions the substantive significance in a research study.
