    From the introduction to the conclusion, this book is a jewel. In clear, crisp, and concise writing, the authors have managed to offer the complexities and, often, the contradictions of producing knowledge from a position of power. The authors address these complexities by outlining a collaborative process designed to collapse boundaries and reduce inequalities. A must-read for everyone interested in research offering possibilities for social change.
    Blye Frank, University of British Columbia

    This is a comprehensive and highly readable text for research students. It explains complex concepts in a straightforward manner, and includes illustrations that demonstrate how ideas have been put into practice in real life research. I would not hesitate in recommending this text to my students. The strong feminist approach, as well as the emphasis on Indigenous research, is to be welcomed.
    Angie Hart, University of Brighton

    ...essential reading for researchers, professors, graduate students, and community groups who want to undertake research aimed at social change.
    Guylaine Demers, Laval University
