Abstract

Honest, self-examining, critical literature on community-based research is a rare commodity. A considerable portion of the current literature on community-based research succumbs to the temptation of romanticising the ‘community’ and the poor, in the process purposefully or inadvertently avoiding the complexities of community politics. Illuminating ‘community politics in engaged research’, this book is a voice for participatory research, providing con-structive criticism of service learning, while advocating for responsible and sensitive research.
