They describe in-depth qualitative interviewing from beginning to end, from its underlying philosophy and assumptions to project design, analysis and write up.

Editorial Reviews

David S. Allen
“The book does a wonderful job of detailing how to develop questions, probes, analyze data, and organizing our data.”
Daphne John
“This book is exactly what I was looking for in that it covers interviewing and analysis in depth.”
Sarita K. Davis
“The Third Edition will be very useful for graduate students. It appears to seamlessly shift its lens from broad landscapes to close-ups without losing focus on the content.
Hannah Britton
“Students leave this book fully informed of the nuances and complexity of interviewing as well as excited about the promise interview research findings offer.”
Cheryl L. Coan
“This text is well-written and easy to follow. It follows the natural flow of a qualitative project.”
Tracy M. Lara
“The authors provide a clear and detailed illustration of the nuts and bolts of interviewing in qualitative research. The focus on the reflective process, question development, and procedural steps associated with qualitative research is rich and thorough.”
Nancy Stanford-Blair
“This edition is at once simpler, and clearer yet more expansive and richer in content, examples and use.”
Eileen S. Johnson
“[The book] is somehow both more concise and more comprehensive than the Second Edition, providing a rich discussion of philosophy as well as design and analytic methods. The authors also have a very pleasant writing style that is engaging to the reader, and provides both clarity of the concepts discussed as well as a sense of a strong knowledge through the use of personal narrative and sharing of experiences.”
Nancy Stanford Blair
“This edition is at once simpler, and clearer yet more expansive and richer in content, examples and use.”

Both his monograph on Thailand, The Dynamics of Development in Rural Development and his book on community renewal in the United States, Renewing Hope within Neighborhoods of Despair: The Community-based Development Model, are based on participant observation and hundreds of in-depth interviews.

She has written journal articles about citizen participation in local level government in Thailand, how universities adapt when their budgets are cut, and fights between legislative staffers and elected and appointed officials about unworkable policy proposals, all based on qualitative interviews. She is in the middle of an interviewing project about how local officials view and use contracts with the private sector and with other governmental units to provide public services.
