-techniques for conducting both qualitative and quantitative research

'This is a much needed, important and thorough book on doing research with (rather than to) children. Such research requires very careful consideration, thinking and planning - all of which will be helped directly by this book.

The authors bring together different professional perspectives, and offer very practical help and guidance, with clear examples. Built upon evidence, theory and most importantly, direct experience, this updated book will be of value to anyone thinking about research with children, and particularly those carrying out such research projects for the first time' -
Irvine S. Gersch
Professor in Educational and Child Psychology, University of East London

'The authors are well qualified to set out the political and ethical issues regarding research with children and young people, arguing that it is a process done 'with' and not done 'to' them. This book is value for money, being useful for educational research up to Level 7 (Master's Degree) across all educational sectors, early years to Further and Higher Education' -- Nick Morgan-Baker
