NEW IN PAPERBACK How to do Action Research for Transformations At a Time of Eco-Social Crisis Hilary Bradbury, AR+ Action Research Plus Foundation, International ‘Hilary Bradbury has made many important contributions to the field of action research over some decades. Yet, I found this book to be her most interesting piece of writing. It is experimental in form and successfully mixes stories of real-world change processes, with auto-biographical reflection and conceptual analysis in a way which really made me think. The book is an erudite and passionate articulation of pathways to action at a time when the world urgently needs to nurture the “proliferating micro worlds” that she describes.’ – Danny Burns, The University of Sussex, UK 2022 256 pp Hardback 978 1 80037 304 4 £90.00 / $130.00 Jun 2023 Paperback 978 1 0353 2032 5 c £35.00 / c $50.00 eBook • Elgaronline How to Research Guides NEW IN PAPERBACK A Research Agenda for Food Systems Edited by Colin L.
