Dangerous Fieldwork


Volume: 34
Other Titles in:
Ethnography

October 1994 | 96 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
Researchers sometimes work in settings which are potentially dangerous to their health and safety. For example, they can be vulnerable to violent confrontation, verbal abuse or infectious diseases. This volume explores the contexts, settings and situations which pose high physical risk to the fieldworker, and presents the strategies the author has developed for reducing the risks.

Raymond Lee draws on his own experience in Northern Ireland, as well as on the work of other researchers with groups such as outlaw bikers and youth gangs, drug addicts and informants in inherently dangerous occupations. Dangerous Fieldwork also offers valuable information on the increasingly important topic of sexual harassment.
