The Palgrave International Handbook of Action Research combines chapters from internationally renowned scholars with case studies of action research practice from around the world. It provides new understandings of action research theory alongside histories of the key strands of action research in northern and southern contexts. There are chapters on all the main action research networks that practitioners can join for support; and explorations of the contributions of action research to resistance and reform in situations of political and economic crisis. This is a book to treasure for its scholarship and turn to for ideas when designing innovative projects.
