Participatory Action-Research, or PAR, is an innovative and radical approach to economic and social change that recognizes how important it is for people who are involved to have the critical voice in determining the direction and goals of change. This demands a commitment from social scientists and policy makers to deprofessionalize and share their expertise, and to listen to the feelings and needs of the common people, particularly those forgotten and left voiceless by the dominant institutions of society. "Action and Knowledge" draws on 20 years of experience with the techniques and philosophy of PAR using case studies from Asia, Africa, Latin America and North America to show how widespread this approach to development has become since it emerged as a new way to empower the oppressed two decades ago. As shown in this book, PAR can successfully bring about change because it actively involves people in generating knowledge about their own condition and how it can best be transformed. The book gives a constructive message to social action groups, grass-roots organizers and government officials in both industrialized countries and the Third World on ways to stimulate social and economic change, and will also lead to further dialogue with scholars, teachers and students (especially those who consider themselves "post-modern" about the crisis of "development."

Una sociología sentipensante para América Latina by Orlando Fals-Borda( Book )

13 editions published between 2009 and 2015 in Spanish and held by 90 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fals Borda adelantó una obra teórica y una acción política que se extienden y cubren de manera cualificada buena parte de la historia nacional colombiana, como lo es la segunda mitad del siglo XX y los inicios angustiosos de este siglo XXI, y que desarrolló hasta los últimos momentos de su existencia, pues, como buen costeño sentipensante, por encima de sus desfallecimientos físicos, siempre estaba su vitalidad revolucionaria y su compromiso social. Siendo su obra tan vasta, amplia y multiforme que desborda las posibilidades mismas de la reducción antológica, se ha optado por seleccionar y reunir algunos de sus principales escritos para mostrar a los lectores los elementos centrales de su trayectoria vital. Por ello, lo que se encuentra reunido en este libro es una colección de textos que muestran, de alguna manera, su itinerario teórico-político, con las obvias limitaciones, dificultades y deficiencias de toda selección. Aquí se encontrará al Fals Borda que quiso racionalizar el papel que como intelectual debía desplegar frente al orden social vigente y quien, más allá de su realidad nacional, entendió la importancia de mirar el conjunto de la problemática latinoamericana, en términos de sus procesos revolucionarios inconclusos, lo que le permitió encarar, en toda su crudeza, el valor altruista de la subversión. El hombre que, en muchas ocasiones, como la hicotea, hubo de internarse en la reflexión para renacer y reaparecer sentipensante en la acción decidida y enérgica
