In The Press

"An immediate classic! Authored by the two scholars who have established arts-based inquiry as an important form of inquiry, this new book is foundational to the field. It is based on decades of cutting-edge work by Eisner and Barone who have developed the approach of arts based research to its current status of an acclaimed, richly generative methodology, with a compelling presence in major research conferences and journals. The book deals with such issues as what is (and what is not) arts based research; why do arts based research; who can do arts based research; who the audience can be; how arts based research may be both political and ethical; criteria for assessing arts based research; and the place for theory in arts-based research. The book we have been waiting for years. Beautifully and carefully written, it is a genuine tour de force." ~ Liora Bresler, University of Illinois, Champaign-Urbana
