Editorial Reviews

Review

This rich and diverse collection of essays adds to our understanding of the potential of action research through its strong international perspective on this important topic. Dwight L. Rogers, School of Education, University of North Carolina Chapel Hill
The general dissatisfaction with traditional research paradigms in the social sciences, humanities, and professions (such as education, nursing) has sparked an interest in exploring alternatives, and participatory action research is a natural. The topic is one which pushes researchers to think about issues of politics, ethics, and epistemology in new ways. Sandra Mathison, State University of New York at Albany
This book is unique in beginning to link research to social movements and communitarian politics. Participatory action research recognizes the value of local, insider s knowledge and the different forms such knowledge can take. The contributors argue the importance of respecting the ordinary knowledge and practice of everyday life, often in opposition to an institutional culture where such knowledge has little status. Robert B. Stevenson, State University of New York at Buffalo" --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

From the Back Cover

In this book the authors tell their stories of action research in their own ways, and indeed, give expression to their own cultural positioning as they draw upon their extensive experience in the field and the academy. They write in terms of their own experience, but with a collective as well as individual purpose. Contributors describe the history of participatory action research, and identify its interpretations in the diverse cultural contexts of Colombia, India, Austria, Australia, Venezuela, USA, England, Spain, Thailand, and New Caledonia. Drawing on the fields of nursing, education, community development, land reform, popular education, agriculture, and mass media, the authors describe the development of democratic research practice in quite different institutional and cultural contexts. Teachers, social workers, managers, nurses, adult educators, and agricultural extension and community development workers will all find this collection of writings from key participatory action research practitioners useful and informative. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
