This edited volume presents an international collection of fieldwork experiences from every stage of the research process with a view to normalising the process of adaptation, modification, and even failure during the fieldwork process when circumstances interrupt the expected outcomes.

This book aims to address a gap often found in methodology books by including nine full autopsy-like reflection of fieldwork experiences, selected based on researchers' fields and experience, the diversity of geographical locations and their differing themes. Its chapters record a swathe of experience, from choosing the research themes and hypotheses through to academic presentations and publications, shedding light on an area of experience that is often overlooked.

Documenting experience from anthropologists and sociologists to political scientists and economists, the diversity of the book's approach and its multidisciplinary focus will interest researchers, scholars, and postgraduate students from a range of subdisciplines and levels of fieldwork experience within research methodology.

Louis Augustin-Jean is Senior Lecturer, Department of Political Science, Public Administration and Development Studies, University of Malaya, Malaysia.
