For more than twenty years, John Van Maanen’s Tales of the Field has been a definitive reference and guide for students, scholars, and practitioners of ethnography and beyond. Originally published in 1988, it was the one of the first works to detail and critically analyze the various styles and narrative conventions associated with written representations of culture. This is a book about the deskwork of fieldwork and the various ways culture is put forth in print. The core of the work is an extended discussion and illustration of three forms or genres of cultural representation—realist tales, confessional tales, and impressionist tales. The novel issues raised in Tales concern authorial voice, style, truth, objectivity, and point-of-view. Over the years, the work has both reflected and shaped changes in the field of ethnography. In this second edition, Van Maanen’s substantial new Epilogue charts and illuminates changes in the field since the book’s first publication. Refreshingly humorous and accessible, Tales of the Field remains an invaluable introduction to novices learning the trade of fieldwork and a cornerstone of reference for veteran ethnographers.

“My life revolves around my lurchers and terriers, and the work they do in the field. This book is a compilation of hunting tales about the dogs to whom I owe so much; it recalls events which took place before the ban, as well as those of more recent years. It examines the close relationship I have with my dogs; their successes and failures, and the disasters which sometimes befall those who try their utmost each and every time they pursue their quarry. This book is dedicated to working dogs the world over.”

This book provides an introduction to research and some of the methods in the field of crime and justice and related areas, including police, prisons and criminal justice policy making. Less a dry 'how to' book, it is concerned rather to provide a wide-ranging discussion that illustrates the kind of research that has been done in particular areas, the findings of previous studies, the pitfalls of ‘real life’ research (and some potential solutions) and the range of possible research methods and approaches – both qualitative and quantitative. It shows how appropriate methods are chosen for particular studies and explores the theoretical underpinnings of the studies, including how and why researchers use theory; the political and ethical issues; and the role of emotions such as fear and danger in researching the field of crime and criminal justice. Key features include: First hand interviews with leading ‘hands on’ academics Examples, excerpts and sources of original research Analysis of the theories, methods and outcomes of previous research Throughout the book there is an emphasis on the often troublesome (and often ignored) relationship between the topic of study, desired outcomes and suitable methods, with a wide range of illustrative case studies. Here the approach is practical - pointing out the different approaches various studies have used and how their outcome is often determined by their choice of methods. The book also reflects on the philosophies of research and includes discussions about the way the choice of methods will be reflected in the findings and vice versa (which seems obvious but is often forgotten). Researching Crime and Justice: Tales from the Field will be an essential source of inspiration and ideas for criminology students and other researchers on crime and justice.

Tales of the Field began as a chronicle of hunting memories amongst a group of friends that considered one day we would be too old to remember them if not captured for posterity. Putting those memories on paper brought to life the vivid sunrises and sunsets, the pungent smell of flooded timber, and wet dogs shaking off water after a great retrieve, as well as those days where nothing goes right. David Brown's first chance at publishing has filled this book with stories that may stir up memories of your days afield. It embodies many experiences, good and bad with friends, and that is what life is all about. From hunting in pit blinds, layouts or standing in oak bottoms for waterfowl, this book covers a myriad of adventure tales with a few special days of turkey hunting too. As we currently live in a time where our days are seemingly driven by technology, the hope is for you to take a reprieve from the chaos, find a comfortable chair and read about a time when moments in the woods and water surely bring a smile to your face and a feeling of peace in your soul.
