Action Research in Education is written with the mastery of those who have a deep appreciation of the lived reality of the teacher as professional, as researcher and as practitioner - Baumfield, Hall and Wall know their subject and their people. Its engaging clarity and lucidity brings to life the real practice of action research at all levels in education. In getting to the very essence of action research, written with the innate respect for the academic and non-academic researcher alike Baumfield, Hall and Wall have produced a timeless classic'
- Helen O'Sullivan, Lecturer in Educational Leadership and Management, Trinity College Dublin

'A well illustrated compendium of 'when', 'why' and 'how' to use action research. A must-have for new researchers engaged in practitioner or action research, with ample examples of real case studies to promote both intraprofessional and interprofessional dialogue, in community and professional contexts'
-Christine O'Hanlon, Honorary Reader in the School of Education and Lifelong Learning, University of East Anglia

Praise for the first edition:

'Is action research easy? No! Is it achievable? Based on the strength of this text, the answer is an unqualified 'yes'. The book is an accessible, thorough and comprehensive guide to both the processes and heavyweight issues involved in action research'
