Abstract

Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1979, Vol 24(6), 533. Reviews the book, Field research: A manual for logistics and management of scientific studies in natural settings by Judith Fielder (1978). This is probably a useful book for nervous tyros about to embark on a field research project-especially one in an organizational setting. The usefulness of the book lies in the richness and aptness of the many examples. The author is obviously sensitive to the wide range of problems field researchers can encounter, and this little volume expresses this experience in a form that should defend against foreseeable blunders and make it easier to live with the unforeseeable ones.
