Reviews

"This book is a welcome addition to the growing number of books that are exploring theoretical and methodological issues in research with deaf people. Each chapter is well written and provides many references to other research (including that of the authors), so that readers can follow up any particular items of interest. There is a useful summary at the end of each chapter entitled 'concluding thoughts', which helps to pose questions for the reader, which is accompanied by a list of the references cited in that chapter. I would thoroughly recommend this book. I believe that it will be useful to social researchers with a broad range of research interests. This book will be of interest not only to people newly considering social research and/or research with deaf people but also to experienced researchers who are open to critiquing their own research practices." --Jemina Napier, International Journal of Social Research Methodology "This book is a welcome addition to the growing number of books that are exploring theoretical and methodological issues in research with deaf people.
