About this Item

"People are usually treated as 'objects' of research, this book treats them as 'subjects'. It challenges us to begin with people's experience when doing research. It not only presents this challenge but provides us with a 'how to' for procedding. This is not a book for those who wish to maintain the relations of domination, exploitation and opression. However, for those who wish to change these relations, it cannot be overlooked." This book has 184 pages. The text contains NO internal marks whatsoever. Bookseller Inventory # 038427

About this title


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.
