Research Realities in the Social Sciences: Negotiating Fieldwork Dilemmas by Gregory S. Szarycz
Most studies on fieldwork represent the research process in ideal and potentially abstract forms—a process seemingly void of human fallibility and separate from the everyday context in which academics conduct their work. This unique volume is much more acutely oriented to the problems of conducting fieldwork––a considerable contrast to the squeaky-clean depictions of fieldwork in most publications.
