9781412920292: The SAGE Handbook of Action Research: Participative Inquiry and Practice

′For anyone seeking to create meaning out of life, inspire others with publication of research discoveries and insights, and help the world become a better place within which to live and work, action research holds great promise as an approach. The challenge is to do it well and with rigor. The Handbook is a magnificent collection of articles that will help the reader do all of that′

- Richard E. Boyatzis, Case Western Reserve University and ESADE

′This second volume will be a welcome extension of the landmark first volume of the Sage Handbook of Action Research. It effectively secures the field′s ′second wave′ in a particularly powerful and creative articulation of well-theorised practice. It could not be more timely for a fast-growing field that has attracted recent appreciation from parties as disparate as Shell, 3M, Australian Aboriginal women in outback Australia working to prevent harm to children and the Secretary General of the UN′

- Yoland Wadsworth

′For anyone thinking about or doing action research, this book is an obligatory point of reference. If any one text both maps the action research paradigm, and at the same time moves it on, this is it′

- Bill Cooke, Manchester Business School

Building on the strength of the seminal first edition, The Sage Handbook of Action Research has been completely updated to bring chapters in line with the latest qualitative and quantitative approaches in this field of social inquiry. Editors Peter Reason and Hilary Bradbury have introduced new part commentaries that draw links between different contributions and show their interrelations.

Throughout, the contributing authors really engage with the pragmatics of doing action research and demonstrate how this can be a rich and rewarding reflective practice. They tackle questions of how to integrate knowledge with action, how to collaborate with co-researchers in the field, and how to present the necessarily ′messy′ components in a coherent fashion. The organization of the volume reflects the many different issues and levels of analysis represented.

This volume is an essential resource for scholars and professionals engaged in social and political inquiry, organizational research and education.

About the Author:

I retired in 2009 from an academic career at the University of Bath in which my primary contribution was to the theory and practice of participatory action research. I was Director of the Centre for Action Research in Professional Practice (CARPP) and co-founder of the MSc in Responsibility and Business Practice. In these programmes we pioneered graduate education based on collaborative, experiential and action-oriented forms of inquiry.

Review:

 

This it is a compendium of guidance, reassuring the action researcher of the role of the spirit of inquiry, the often tacit nature of knowledge, the complexity and messiness of the action research process and the organizational and social worlds it inhabits and seeks to change. [...] Those PhD supervisors who have concerns about the link between individual postgraduate research and a wider social change mission have a new ‘bible’ in this handbook, as the relationship is clear throughout between academic knowledge and social and organizational change-focused purposes and practices. (Dr Maeve O’Grady 2013-09-25)
