The emphasis of the book is to explain a new approach to research on social change and the principle that all people have the right to participate in the production of knowledge that directly affects them. Case studies of participatory action-research (PAR) in Canada, India, Africa and Latin America show how it can be achieved. The final chapter analyzes the lessons learned from these diverse studies and explores the principles and processes of PAR methadology.
