Kirby and McKenna's Experience Research Social Change: Methods from the Margins, first published in 1989, quickly and successfully established a place in the field of qualitative research methods by taking into account life on the margins, being marginalized, and being invisible. Many of the ideas then put forward have been taken "into the mainstream." In this completely revised and updated edition, Kirby, Greaves, and Reid look "beyond the mainstream" to reveal the importance of framing research in its full theoretical, ideological, and ethical contexts and then putting research findings into practice in clear, logical ways.


Experience Research Social Change: Methods Beyond the Mainstream discusses the issues emerging within contemporary social science research. Based on their extensive applied research experience, the authors build the important theoretical framing and methodological (practical and analytical) steps, enabling those new to social science approaches to undertake social research oriented toward social change. Experience Research Social Change also captures the emerging issues and debates, particularly those concerning research ethics, working in research teams, and doing interdisciplinary and collaborative work. This new edition is an essential book for a whole new generation of students, researchers, and lecturers within the social sciences.

Review:

Superb text--a 'must read' in undergraduate social research courses and for community groups involved in research. The authors explain the methodological process in an accessible fashion, and infuse it with passion, excitement, and purpose.

(Colleen Anne Dell, Carleton University / Canadian Centre on Substance Abuse)

By combining a straightforward and engaging description of the research process with explicit examples and exercises, the authors of this revised edition of Experience Research Social Change provide the tools needed to conduct meaningful and credible collaborative research. Whether students or community activists, anyone interested in using research to achieve social change will find this volume both inspiring and informative.

(Mary Brydon-Miller, Director Action Research Center, University of Cincinnati)

This is a book that combines solid theoretical background with a step-by-step approach to conducting collaborative research. It should be essential reading for researchers, professors, graduate students, and community groups who want to undertake research aimed at social change.

(Guylaine Demers, Laval University)
