Abstract

In this Handbook the editors invited contributors to reflect on research in which they have been involved, considering why they adopted the research approach they did and in particular what was the role of interpretation in the process of research. The 65 cases produced diverse responses to this task, and it would probably not be very sensible to attempt either a summary or a ‘conclusion’. Nevertheless, having reviewed all these studies, we thought it appropriate that we ourselves should reflect on the material that we had been reading and on our own editorial process and purposes. This Afterword is an edited version of a conversation that took place at our last face-to-face working session on the Handbook.
