Reviews

'A terrific collection, addressed directly to the practitioner-researcher in youth work who intends to conduct their own small-scale research or needs to use research in their professional practice. The book is both accessible and sophisticated and provides a 'state-of-the-art' overview of the field that is characterised by a clear ethical commitment to social justice and participation. A gem!' -- Rachel Thomson, Professor of Social Research, The Open University, UK.
