"It is a guide of vital importance to researchers, trainers and extension workers, especially those collaborating with communities in developing countries."
- European Journal of Development Research

 

"There is much of value here that even experienced development workers might learn from.... Mikkelsen offers many insights that would be valuable to any economist undertaking field work in development."
- The Australian Journal of Agricultural Economics

 

"An enthusiastic, vibrant supplement to methodology texts.... The formulation is concise, comprehensive, yet substantial."
- Business Line

 

"Development researchers will be grateful to Mikkelsen for her laudable job in competently assessing their needs.... She provides an overview of the traditional and the new techniques and tools for field study."
- Deccan Herald

This completely revised version of the successful 1995 text covers a wide range of issues relating to research concepts and methods. It incorporates new lessons that have been learned regarding the merits and pitfalls of development work.

Reflecting on how and why research in international development work has become a special case within the social sciences, this book provides innovative examples of participatory methods in action; methodological guidance on linking research purpose, questions and methods in qualitative and quantitative research; highlights new methods for development work and research like the Rights-based Approach, Appreciative Inquiry, the Social Capital Analysis Tool and Geomatics; emphasizes the gender perspective in development work; and discusses ethics, regulations and codes of conduct, as well as the question of encounters with `other` cultures.
