About the Author

Pat Drake is Senior Lecturer in Education at the University of Sussex, UK. Linda Heath is Senior Lecturer in the Business School at the University of Brighton, UK.


"Throughout the book, the authors clearly identify the complexities of conducting research in one's own professional setting, the challenges of making the everyday 'problematic', reflecting critically on practice with which one - and others - are engaged, and continuing to work successfully within the setting. They acknowledge the political influences that inform professional research and the doctoral researcher, and relationships with colleagues who are also part of the research setting. However, Drake and Heath believe that this also brings a uniqueness to the research because the researcher is working from a unique perspective." - Gwyneth Owen-Jackson, Higher Education Review 2012
