The nature of qualitative inquiry means that researchers constantly have to deal with the unexpected, and all too often this means coping with the presence of danger or risk. This innovative and lively analysis of danger in various qualitative research settings is drawn from researchers reflexive accounts of their own encounters with danger.An original take on the ever-popular topic of the ethics of research, this pioneering book expands the common sense use of the term to encompass not just physical danger, but emotional, ethical and professional danger too, with the authors paying special attention to the gendered forms of danger implicit in the research process.

From the physical danger of researching the night club bouncer scene to the ethical dangers of participant observation in an old peoples home, these international contributions provide researchers and students with thought provoking insights into the importance of a well chosen research design.
