Lee-Treweek and Linkogle's collection can be considered an excellent contribution to the literature; their aim is to initiate discussions about safety in the field and to encourage the consideration of the physical, emotional and ethical well-being of the researcher.
–Choice

Danger in the Field is a collection of eleven articles that deal with the physical, emotional, ethical and professional dangers that the authors have encountered in the course of their own qualitative research projects…Unlike most such collections, commentary on the readings is supplied not just by the editors but also by the authors themselves who have clearly read each other's offerings and take up issues raised by one another. The result is an unusually coherent reader,..In short, Danger in the Field is an intriguing and unusually well put-together collection that raises useful issues even for those whose research does not appear on the surface to be risky…it is the sort of reader that is likely to appeal to anyone engaged in qualitative research..
–Canadian Journal of Sociology Online, September - October 2001

This book is an innovative and lively analysis of the experience of different forms of danger in various qualitative research settings. Made up of researchers' reflective accounts of their own encounters with 'danger' while carrying out research.
