Contents:
Putting danger in the frame / Geraldine Lee-Treweek and Stephanie Linkogle -- Taking the flak : operational policing, fear and violence / Louise Westmarland -- Getting on the door and staying there : a covert participant observational study of bouncers / David Calvey -- Negotioating danger in fieldwork on crime : a researcher's tale / Janet Jamieson -- Bacteria and babies : a personal reflection on researcher risk in a hospital / Gloria Lankshear -- Dangerous liaisons : auto/biograpy in research and research writing / Gayle Letherby -- The insight of emotional danger : research experiences in a home for older people / Geraldine Lee-Treweek -- Relajo : danger in a crowd / Stephanie Linkogle -- Body, career and community : the implications of researching dangerous groups / Arthur J.

Peterson.
Summary: The nature of qualitative inquiry means that researchers constantly have to deal with the unexpected, and all too often this means coping with the presence of danger or risk. This innovative and lively analysis of danger in various qualitative research settings is drawn from researchers' reflexive accounts of their own encounters with 'danger'. An original take on the ever-popular topic of the ethics of research, this pioneering book expands the common sense use of the term to encompass not just physical danger, but emotional, ethical and professional danger too, with the authors paying special attention to the gendered forms of danger implicit in the research process. From the physical danger of researching the night club 'bouncer' scene to the ethical dangers of participant observation in an old people's home, these international contributions provide researchers and students with thought provoking insights into the importance of a well chosen research design.
