"The introduction is presented in such a way that the reader is very much enticed to continue reading. This book was very worthwhile. The book's approach to concepts, application, and challenges was appropriate."
My research interests include gender and the police, violence and integrity and ethics in the criminal justice system. Iam also interested in ethnographic research methods, danger, fear and situations where privileged access leads to dilemmas for researchers. In the past I have published articles on police informers and the way they are regulated and the effect of this upon rights and justice. More recently Iave completed a book about research methods in criminology. My other recent research projects have included studying women bouncers and violence in the context of social control of the night time economy (ESRC Grant reference: RES-000-23-0384-A). This project was called Women on the Door: Female Bouncers in the New Night-time Economy carried out with Professor Dick Hobbs.
