The second edition of Decolonizing Methodologies was released in 2012. “It includes references to new Indigenous literature that has emerged. It retains most of the first part of the books as it was originally. The middle and later chapters have been edited and new chapters have been added at the end which address issues for researchers who choose to work in this decolonizing space” (Smith, 2013, p.x).
“The intellectual project of decolonizing has to set out ways to proceed through a colonizing world. It needs radical compassion that reaches out, that seeks collaboration and that is open to possibilities that can only be imagined as other things fall into place” (Smith, 2012, p.xii).
