These tales of the field witnesses relate the hidden difficulties and pitfalls of doing research and discuss often-neglected questions. What does it mean to do research in a hypermasculine environment as a prison? What are the challenges to getting access to a police organization or to private intelligence organizations and private security companies? How does a researcher cope with her or his own emotions during fieldwork? How does an ex-convict experience the process of becoming a researcher? What are the hidden or unexpected problems of publishing? What are the challenges of doing comparative research?

These are only a few questions that are dealt with in this book, which is written by researchers for researchers and students of criminology.
