The third edition of the SAGE Handbook of Action Research presents a fully updated version of the bestselling text, including new chapters written by key figures in the field covering emerging areas in healthcare, social work, education and international development, as well as an expanded ‘skills’ section which includes new consultant-relevant materials. Building on the strength of the previous editions, editor Hilary Bradbury has carefully developed the third edition to take a strong international approach to the topic of action research and thus expanding the already-impressive scale and scope of the work. In essence, the third edition follows in the footsteps of the landmark previous editions by mapping the current state of the discipline, as well as looking to the future of the field and exploring the issues at the cutting edge of the action research paradigm today. This volume is an essential resource for scholars and professionals engaged in social and political inquiry, organizational research and education.

Feelings in First Person Action Research
Feelings in first person action research

First person action research is an inquiry into a person's ways of being and acting in the world (Marshall 1999, 2001; Reason and Bradbury 2001; Torbert 2001; see also Bradbury, Introduction, this volume). Like all action research, it is about promoting change, and first person action research is an effort to change oneself into being a more fine-tuned instrument for one's acting in the world generally and in the world of action research especially. This implies being more aware of what is going on in oneself as well as in the surroundings. Even if other people often help in this process, the last step has to be taken by the person him/herself.
