  • Subject index

Research Ethics for Human Geography is a lively and engaging introduction to key ethical issues in geographical research by leading figures in the discipline. It addresses the wide range of ethical issues involved in collecting, analysing and writing-up research across the social sciences, and explores and explains the more specific ethical issues associated with different forms of geographical inquiry. Each chapter comprises detailed summaries and definitions, real-life case studies, student check-lists and annotated recommendations for reading, making the book a valuable toolkit for students undertaking all forms of geographical research, from local and overseas fieldwork, through to dissertation research, methods-training, and further research. How it relates to competition? Principal text is our text: Clifford, N., French, S., and Valentine, G. (2010) Key Methods in Geography (568pp, £26.99). While there is consideration of ethics - more so in the forthcoming new ed. (2016) this proposal focusses explicitly on ethics in design and execution.
