Fieldwork is one of the richest research methods in the Social Sciences. Originally, the preserve of anthropologists, notably Bronislaw Malinowski, it has now achieved a much wider relevance. This four volume set provides the most systematic guide to the method.
Volume 1 addresses the Origins and Definitions of Fieldwork and includes sections on the meaning of Fieldwork, Fieldwork and Theory, Early Fieldwork, Fieldwork and Fieldworkers.
Volume 2 concentrates on the Fieldwork Experience and covers the History of Fieldwork, Sampling in the Field, Observing in the Field, Field Talk (Interviews and Conversations), Documents and the Field, Visual Methods and Fieldwork and Reflecting On Fieldwork Experience.
Volume 3 focuses on Ethics and Politics in Fieldwork and includes sections on The Relevance of Politics and Ethics, Taking Sides, Sensitive and Stressful Situations, Dilemmas and Responsibilities.
Volume 4 addresses the Analysis, Outcomes and Reflections of Fieldwork and includes sections on Analyzing Fieldwork, Fieldwork and the Author, Representing Fieldwork, Autoethnography and Writing Method and Leaving The Field.
The collection is a superb addition to the series, providing readers with a comprehensive and indispensable critical guide to Fieldwork.
