A welcome and overdue contribution to the field. Identifying a need for an empirical guide to complement the abundant theoretical literature, this book combines a variety of practical avenues of advice with analytical sophistication, without losing any of the subject matter’s complexities. The contextual chapters are well judged and informative, while readers will surely find the careful selection and very clear presentation of the case studies particularly useful in thinking through the projects from start to completion.
included good case studies but not tangible enough for first years students.
This is an interesting and informative book. However, as the title suggests it is more appropriate to our Dissertion module, and despite the content being transferable to all areas of inequalities it would only be directly relevant to students who are researching racism or related areas.
Given the unpredictable areas that students focus their research. It is likely that I would recommend students to consider this book I f they are researching racism within policy and practice.
This is a great little book, providing advanced students and academics with a comprehensive overview of concepts, previous research and research methods which can be used in constructing research projects around the notions of race and racism. The authors write in an accessible style and the result is a very interesting and readable account of how to work in this particular scientific field.
