"Gathered here are parts I and II of the Handbook of Oral History, which set the benchmark for knowledge of the field. The eminent contributors discuss the history and methodologies of a field that once was the domain of history scholars who were responding to trends within the academy, but which has increasingly become democratized and widely used outside the realm of historical research. This handbook will be both a traveling guide and essential touchstone for anyone fascinated by this dynamic and expanding discipline."
"This wide-ranging volume illustrates similarities and differences in oral history from around the world... It also details the subjects- such as women's history, family history, gay and lesbian history, ethnic history and disability history- to which oral history has made a significant contribution... The collection details issues in the theory and practice of oral history and covers influential debates in its development over the past sixty years."
"Provides a comprehensive guide to oral history for researchers and students in diverse fields including history, sociology, anthropology, education, psychology, social work, and ethnographic methods."
