Product Description

Review

'This is the book I've been waiting for: a fat, stimulating and carefully selected and edited collection of significant contributions on oral history theory and practice....I recommend it to anyone embarking on or already immersed in the challenges, delights and stimulation of oral history work' Oral History

'It provides a rich resource for oral history students, practitioners and researchers in diverse settings. And it offers more traditional historians another powerful perspective on history' Social History of Medicine

'By far the most comprehensive, valuable collection of articles on the topic in the English language...Their historical sweep, from some of the earliest pieces on interviewing to the recent explorations of the use of new technology, offer something to both the novice and the seasoned practitioner...The remarkable collection is a boon to students and teachers alike' Sherna Berger Gluck, Oral History Program California State University, Long Beach

'Such a clever and well-informed selection... The Oral History Reader 2006 is an affirmation that second (and subsequent editions) are important... This second edition of The Oral History Reader will certainly remain a prescribed text for my students and essential reading for anyone interested  in oral history.'  Janis Wilton, Oral History

'Oral history sits at the frontiers of the disciplines and activities that it traverses and as such, does keep pushing boundaries, and that pushing is well represented here.' Janis Wilton, Oral History 2007

'This book has depth as well as breadth... Each section contains articles remarkable for insights and spurs to thinking. I whole-heartedly recommend the Oral History Reader both to the seasoned practitioner ahead of current thinking in the field of oral history and also to the instructor considering adopting this inclusive and stimulating text for newcomers to oral history.' - The Oral History Review

7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Mr. C. Samuels on 3 Oct. 2008
Format: Paperback
I bought this book as part of an Oral History Course at university whilst studying my BA but it has been helpful during my MA as well. Several of the extracts explored unusual and interesting topics that I had never explored myself but remained closely tied to the different aspects and theories of oral history. A great introduction to oral history and a must for anyone studing within the field.

Nice read 14 Dec. 2012
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I purchased this book for a graduate class on oral history. It was an amazingly hard book to read in some area and fairly straight forward in others. This probably due to the fact that its a collection of different essays. They range from applications of oral history projects to an analysis of the process or debate about specific aspects. Oral history is as old as humanity but as recently gotten a bad rep for being somewhat unscientific. This book discusses these issues and brings back this art form to the forefront. I would recommend this book for all readers. Just have a pencil handy!

Great Book 30 Jun. 2012
By Ministro - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is a good handbook for beginning to explore the realms of Oral History. The theories and debates contemplated are a little bit old (90's), but is very practical to go inside this branch of history. Very recommended

a comprehensive coverage of current perspectives on undertaking oral history. although an academic text it would also be useful for the lay reader.
