Synopsis

This book provides theoretical and empirical tools to explore some of the questions which lie at the heart of current debates around researching race. It considers issues such as: How can 'race' be sociologically understood? Do different methodological approaches operate with different conceptualizations of 'race'? What difficulties is a researcher likely to face when researching a different racial group to their own? Researching race has become increasing important in order to advance our understanding of how race operates in our society and the implications it has for social cohesion. By combining a critical approach with the exploration of contemporary dilemmas, this book succeeds in offering students an accessible look at this often highly theoretical area. The author provides case studies which address the issues at the heart of research work on race and offers clear guidance for successful evidence-based research work. "Researching Race" is key reading for students and researchers who are seeking to critically assess approaches to race and engage with contemporary debates.
