A book review is a critical assessment of a book. It provides a summary of the content and assesses the book's value in terms of its relevance and quality. The purpose of a book review is to help readers decide whether or not they should read the book. In with this line of purpose, the book entitled, Emancipatory and Participatory Research for Emerging Educational Researchers: Theory and Case Studies of Research in Disabled Communities, written by Joe Barton and Simon Hayhoe and published by Routledge in the year 2022, I conducted my review organized by the following questions -- What is in the book, what are the key contributions to the field, and what are its strengths and limitations? While reviewing, I found the book to be significant in response to my interests in emancipatory and participatory research for emerging educational researchers for empowerment and autonomy.
