Reviews

"Bagele Chilisa brings voice to a community of researchers who have much to offer in terms of their rich cultural heritages and expertise in research methodology. She provides an integration of theory and method that has applicability in many contexts. I would recommend this book to anyone who is working in indigenous communities in health, education, international development, or social sciences." -- Donna M. Mertens
"This book is beautifully written and expertly argued. Bravo!"
-- Patty Loew
"Your book encapsulates many things that I have been struggling to frame and teach (ie. how to give more than token acknlowledgement to other ways of knowing). I have already recommended it to my colleagues and phD students. I hope to use it as the set text for a new subject." -- Rob Nabben
