Summary
  • This comprehensive collection contributes to, advances and consolidates discussions of the range of research methods in criminology through the presentation of diverse international case studies in which contributors reflect upon their experiences with powerless and powerful individuals or groups.
  • 'This volume, the first in more than a decade, brings together myriad authors from around the globe to provide credence for our attempts to expand a postmodern ethnography. It offers refreshing reflections that show how ethnographers' backgrounds can impact on the interpretation and representation of data. A welcome new volume in the field, [this book] will pique criminological field researchers to think more about how their own actions and biographies affect who we study and what we find.' - Patricia Adler, University of Colorado, USA "Lumsden and Winter's new edited collection contains a series of fascinating essays that reflect upon the research process and the creation of criminological knowledge. In particular, these essays are concerned with the relationships that develop between the researcher and the researched and the manner in which the researcher interprets the social action unfolding in front of them. For too long reflexivity has been tangential to criminological research methodologies. This book places it centre stage. It will no doubt be a crucial resource for qualitative criminologists about to head out into the field." - Simon Winlow, Teeside University, UK

Summary expansion
Doing research with criminals or deviants has inspired much academic reflection, particularly in respect of the risks and dangers which researchers may face in these contexts, as well as the ethical, legal and moral dilemmas they provoke. This collection contributes to, advances and consolidates discussions of the range of methods and approaches in criminology through the presentation of diverse international case studies in which the authors reflect upon their experiences with both powerless and/or powerful individuals/groups. Reflexivity, and the need to be reflexive, permeates all criminological research and the chapters in this collection cover various aspects of this, including gaining access to the field, building relationships with the researched, the impact of the researcher's identity on the research (including gender, class and race), ethics, risk, bias and partisanship, policy implications, and how to disseminate findings and 'give voice' to the researched. A range of research settings are drawn from including those typically involving the powerful, such as state institutions, courts and prisons, to those typically conceived of as powerless, such as deviant and dangerous individuals as well as subcultures including boy racers and hooligans. Research participants defined as vulnerable, for example victims of crime, are also considered. This comprehensive collection explores a variety of methods including interviews, participant observation, virtual ethnography and feminist research. Acknowledging the fluid nature of power relations and dynamics, this volume will be a valuable resource to scholars of criminology and sociology
