'Poetic Inquiry as Social Justice and Political Response' is both timely and desperately needed. One of the strongest points about the book is the excellent writers contained within--for those of us who use poetry as a methodology, a majority of the names are totally recognizable because they are well-published and understand the power of poetry in representing research. There are a wide variety of topics and approaches which is delicious for the reader----it definitely was for me! Some absolute standouts for me where Sheila Stewart. Anne McCrary Sullivan, Sandra Faulkner and Kimberly Dark. This book will have a massive impact in the field of qualitative inquiry because it exemplifies how poetic inquiry has come out from under the shadows as an alternate form of research (wherein researchers were always apologizing or explaining the method) to a primary, viable way of presenting research. All of the big issues are represented: feminism, resistance, social justice, wellbeing, war, race and identity, ecopoetics, etc. are covered. The depth and breadth of this collection makes for a concise and informed collection!Michelle Reale
