Reviews

'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
