This collection of papers examines ethical issues in different kinds of social research including surveys, ethnography and historical research. Contributors also deal with ethical problems involved in examining controversial issues in education. Hence the book is largely about the ethics of the conduct of social investigation, rather than an analysis of the technical procedures themselves.
