"These essays suggest, indeed insist, that we rediscover, even reinvent, our self-images as researchers, our practices of research, and our ideas of the aims of inquiry. They present models, ideas, examples, and theories to prod that reflexivity, but have no interest in offering the false solace of method. Where emancipation is the interest, all methods give way to dialogue. These essays stand on the hope, the basic belief, that such dialogue is possible and invite your participation." - from the Introduction by Peter L. McLaren and James M. Giarelli
