Summary Researching Families and Children: Culturally Appropriate Methods highlights methodological issues that arise while conducting research on human development in India. This compilation deals with the dynamics of transacting research in the field, instead of providing formalized instructions on how to conduct research. This set of essays thus scores over most other books on research methodology in this regard. Dwelling on authentic encounters in the field the authors articulate the various processes of interaction, while providing transparency in procedure and practicality in approach.
