In much of this there is probably an element of play. The researcher, like the apprentice or the greenhorn, provides a ready source of amusement. Accordingly, researchers are teased; given derogatory nicknames (Brewer, 1993); or placed in difficult, unpleasant, or compromising situations in order to see how they cope (Van Maanen, 1991). Tests may be rather more exacting in conflict situations. In some cases what is being tested are the limits of the researcher’s tolerance. The migrant workers in the South African mineworkers’ hostel studied by McNamara (1987) pointedly asked him to drink with them in the hostel beer hall in order to see how willing he was, as a white, to accept them as equals.

G.. Diamond, 1964). Researchers in this kind of situation typically seek ways to evade the gatekeeper’s control. Often in doing so, however, they still face barriers. Association with those who hold power invokes distrust among lower-level participants. The police officers Brewer (1993) studied in Northern Ireland were by no means concerned only about the security implications of the research; they also worried that it might be used by 22 management against their interests. The local bar culture made leftwing elements in Fuenmayor accessible to Gilmore.

As Johnson points out, however, there remains considerable scope for academic involvement in research, consultancy, recruitment, covert activities, and direct intelligence gathering. It is important, therefore, not to cast doubt on one’s bona fides as a researcher. Beals (1969, p. 30) reports that at least one anthropologist may have been murdered because he was thought to be working for the CIA.
