Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This paper seeks to address some of the pragmatic and ethical issues encountered when researching violence. We seek through reference town work and to the work others to highlight the inevitability of these problems and to suggest that dealing with them is instrinsic to the sociological enterprise.
