The literature on action research is immense and deep. In this chapter, I draw from that literature to discuss the early history, origins, theory, and development of action research.
The integration of action research into school settings and the benefits of action research for teachers are delineated. The influence of postmodernism and feminism on the nature and character of action research is reviewed.
Different approaches to action research are described. I hope that as you read this chapter you will develop a fundamental grasp of the historical, theoretical, and epistemological underpinnings of action research as well as an appreciation for action research as intellectual practice and a way of thinking.

Baez and Boyles examine these forces and offer an alternative to the current pushes to make educational inquiry scientific.
