Product Description



'The Handbook of Feminist Research: Theory and Praxis is a well-developed contribution to the body of feminist literature. It effectively highlights the connection between feminist research and social change by drawing upon the range of existent feminist epistemologies, methods, and practices, all of which adopt different means of conceptualising, researching, and ultimately representing the lived experiences of women, varied across the lines of race, class and/or other demographics. The text, while accessible for both research and teaching purposes, perhaps most importantly draws our attention to the need to be critically aware in the process of conducting feminist research. One must address the challenges, research developments, and, crucially, the diversity amongst women, that may be incurred in attempting to research, understand, and accurately represent the lived experiences of all women'

5.0 out of 5 stars College-level libraries strong in women's studies or social science can't afford to be without 6 Feb. 2007
By Midwest Book Review - Published on
Format: Hardcover
How does feminist research differ from traditional research approaches, and why are their foundation concepts of praxis and activism scattered throughout the research community with little cross-connections to social research as a whole? These and other issues are answered in HANDBOOK OF FEMINIST RESEARCH, a college-level pick presenting a survey of how feminist research is implemented and connected. Feminist researchers describe the process, its connections, and its range of approaches - many of which have resulted in cutting-edge breakthroughs in the research community. Issues of race, class, geography and more are surveyed in chapters that cover such research around the world, while future trends are analyzed. College-level libraries strong in women's studies or social science can't afford to be without this in-depth set of articles for students and scholars at the graduate level.

The book was misprinted and was missing pages. I had to borrow a classmate's book to do a presentation. Other than that, the content is good but could have been edited better.
