It is superbly written, organized with amazing grace, highly inclusive of diverse research activities, and includes of some of the most well-known feminist scholars in a range of academic disciplines. This is a truly amazing handbook a huge enterprise, elegantly crafted by editor-author, Sharlene Nagy Hesse-Biber and completed by 52 other authors. The handbook is an outstanding contribution to feminist research, but beyond that, an excellent resource for students at all levels of inquiry and professional identification. There is nothing else to compete with its inclusiveness and intellectual prowess." —JOURNAL OF PHENOMENOLOGICAL PSYCHOLOGY

Editorial Reviews

California Bookwatch - Midwest Book Review
"Feminist researchers describe the process, its connections, and its range of approaches - many of which have resulted in cutting - edgebreakthroughs 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 ofarticles for students and scholars at the graduate level."

R. V. Kutz-Flamenbaum
"This comprehensive edited volume is an important contribution to feminist scholarship. It integrates a wide range of theoretical, empirical, and practical material to provide an interdisciplinary review of classic and contemporary feminist theory, as well as an invaluable guide to help scholars construct their own research agendas. Among the volume's most significant contributions is the successful explanation of what makes research "feminist" through the use of inclusive definitions and emphasis on both the synergies and tensions in the relationships between feminist activism and scholarship. Very useful as a reference for students or as a text in research methods. Highly recommended."
