CREESE, Gillian and Wendy FRISBY, (eds.). Feminist Community Research : Case Studies and Methodologies. Edited by Gillian Creese and Wendy Frisby. Vancouver: UBC Press, (2011). First Printing. Pp. (4),[v]-x,(2),[1]-254,(2). 8vo, decorated yellow card covers. "Grounded as they are in fieldwork, the interdisciplinary case studies in this volume acknowledge the real methodological and ethical issues that researchers can encounter as they negotiate contested research relationships. The authors discuss the strategies -- successful and unsuccessful -- that they have employed to overcome these challenges. The authors' collective experiences working with diverse groups, fromimmigrant and Aboriginal women in Vancouver to poverty-reduction practitio ners in Vietnam, reveal that truly equitable research projects require thatwe question core concepts and address crucial issues such as the promises and limits of reflexivity; the politics of place, time, and resources; ethical dilemmas and emotional responses; and the way issues of social justice,policy, and social change are embedded in research." - from the rear cover .
