Social justice is about hope and transforming society where resources, rights, and power are equitable without signs of oppression. Qualitative researchers escape the boundaries of the positivism and develop understanding in context. When a researcher combines a qualitative methodological approach with a social justice paradigm, he or she brings a sense of hope for a more just society. The book Fostering Social Justice Through Qualitative Inquiry: A Methodological Guide by Corey Johnson and Diana Parry provides readers and researchers the theory and practice to make a positive, transformational difference in our world.
