What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

“The research interview is a ubiquitous part of social science and humanities research. Yet it continues to pose conceptual and analytic challenges to experienced researchers and students alike. The clear-sighted theoretical and experiential accounts in this book provide us with invaluable compass points and guide ropes.” (Professor Constant Leung, King's College London, UK)

“Steve Mann has produced an outstanding, accessible resource on interviewing. A myriad of voices and experiences can be heard loud and clear in the excellent examples provided. We are invited into the real-time of interview interactions as they are nurtured by participants engaged in conversation. Readers will find important insights into the choices and decisions researchers make in the interviewing process.” (Professor Angela Creese, University of Birmingham, UK)

“This is a timely book that answers the call for a detailed empirical and data-led account of issues related to the collection, analysis and representation of qualitative interview data. The book’s strength is that it foregrounds the voices and experience of qualitative researchers as they reflect on and learn from their own interviewing experiences.” (Professor Thomas S.C. Farrell, Brock University, Canada)
