Overview

Thoroughly revised and updated, the Third Edition of Action Research is a succinct and readable text that provides clear direction to those involved in professional, organizational, and community research. A best seller in previous editions, this text provides a simple but highly effective model for conducting action research-Look, Think, and Act. Author Ernest T. Stringer presents detailed step-by-step procedures for engaging in effective and productive processes of inquiry.

New to the Third Edition: Gives an extensive review of the growing literature on action research: Stringer broadens the scope of the book by including the literature and theoretical movements that have come to light since the Second Edition. Offers a thorough overview of the fundamentals of action research: The author provides a great deal of context on action research in the early chapters as well as a new section on its theoretical foundations. Presents the latest coverage of conducting literature reviews: Stringer updates the discussion on literature review and moves it into a separate chapter. Provides updated appendices and Web links: These resources give cutting-edge information on action research. Prepares readers for undertaking action research projects: A new section at the end of each chapter called "Reflection and Practice" offers exercises that provide guidance for the direct application of qualitative research to applied research.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Stringer (education and community development, Curtin U. of Technology, Western Australia) describes interactive research tools by which professionals and non-professionals who provide services to people in community, organizational, or institutional contexts can deal effectively with many of the problems that confront them during their work. Based on his decade in academia since the first edition, he makes his insights from community work more easily digestible by scholars. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Meet the Author

Ernest T. Stringer is author of numerous influential books on action research, including Action Research in Education (2008), Action Research in Health (with Bill Genat, 2004), and Action Research in Human Services (with Rosalie Dwyer, 2005). After an early career as primary teacher and school principal, Stringer served as lecturer in education at Curtin University of Technology in Western Australia. From the mid-eighties, based at Curtin’s Centre for Aboriginal Studies, he worked collaboratively with Aboriginal staff and community people to develop a wide variety of innovative and highly successful education and community development programs and services. As visiting professor at the University of New Mexico and Texas A&M, he has taught research methods courses and engaged in projects with African American and Latino community and neighborhood groups. As a UNICEF consultant, he recently engaged in a major project to increase parent participation in the schools in East Timor. Stringer has served (until prior to publication of this book) as a member of the editorial board of the Action Research Journal and is past president of the Action Learning and Action Research Association (ALARA).
