About the Author:

Martyn Hammersley is Professor of Educational and Social Research at The Open University. He has carried out research in the sociology of education and the sociology of the media. However, much of his work has been concerned with the methodological issues surrounding social enquiry. He has written several books, including: Reading Ethnographic Research (Longman 1991); What′s Wrong with Ethnography? (Routledge 1992); The Politics of Social Research (Sage 1995); Taking Sides in Social Research (Routledge, 1999); Educational Research, Policymaking and Practice (Paul Chapman, 2002), Questioning Qualitative Inquiry (Sage 2008), Methodology, Who Needs It? (Sage, 2011), and What is Qualitative Research? (Continuum/Bloomsbury, 2013)



Martin Robb is a Lecturer in the Faculty of Health and Social Care at The Open University. He is co-editor of Relating Experience: stories from health and social care (Routledge, 2005); Communication, Relationships and Care (Routledge, 2004); and Understanding Health and Social Care (SAGE, 1998), and has published articles and book chapters on a wide range of topics, with a recent focus on issues of fatherhood, masculinity and childcare. Before joining the OU he worked in informal and community education projects with adults and young people.

Review:

'There is no single or right way to do childhood and youth research, but this useful book provides readers with essential insights into many of the options, shedding light on the various purposes, practicalities, merits and ethical considerations. It is a great starting point for anyone wanting to do research that is respectful of children and young people.'--Melanie Nind, Professor of Education (01/01/2014)

'Written by authors whose backgrounds exemplify the multi-disciplinary nature of Childhood Studies, this book includes excellent examples of research projects which provide a valuable model for anyone interested in research with children and young people.'--Sue Robson, Principal Lecturer and Subject Leader for Early Childhood Studies (01/01/2014)
