This book bridges a major gap between the theoretical and practical issues relating to community research methodologies. Through a series of reflective chapters, it explores what community research means in a range of settings and for a range of people, examining what it takes to produce a rigorous research project. Surveying important new advancements in research methodology, it measures theory against practice to offer strong recommendations for new approaches. With studentfriendly features, it will be an invaluable book for both those learning and those teaching community research.
