Editorial Reviews

Booknews
It is the belief of the contributors to this volume that the idealized models of research presented in traditional textbooks do not prepare novice researchers for the political and social realities of the actual research practice. The contributors present reflexive autobiographical accounts of the major research projects with which they have been involved; the majority of the chapters examine particular segments of the process of a research project that led to a major book.
