When you hear the word 'research,' what do you understand? To much of the colonized world, 'research' is a charged word that is too often conflated with the act, history, and enduring legacy of European colonialism. In this updated volume, Professor Linda Tuhiwai Smith investigates the complicated intersections that exist between imperialism and research, especially with respect to how the acquisition and transmission of knowledge reinforce tradition as 'regimes of truth.' Truly a much needed and meaningful work for indigenous peoples the world over because it affirms an essential need to further our own appreciation for and understanding of our collective and independent histories.
