Overview

A historian in North Carolina, Yow offers researchers information on carrying out the recorded in-depth—as opposed to focused—interview, touching on ethical issues, questions about interpersonal relations, and techniques for interviewing. Because little empirical research has been done on the efficacy of specific interviewing techniques, she relies on the consensus when there is one of experience interviews on a solution for a particular problem. Among her topics are memory; community, biography, and family projects; and concluding the project. No date is noted for the first edition. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
