Inside Interviewing highlights the fluctuating and diverse moral worlds put into place during interview research when gender, race, culture, the age of respondents and other subject positions are brought narratively to the foreground. It explores the 'facts', thoughts, feelings and perspectives of respondents and how this impacts on the research process. It will provide readers with insights to selecting the appropriate analytic strategy for explicating data that emerges from related activities in the interview process.

ABOUT THE CONTRIBUTORS

"The editors' introduction is excellent, providing a brief history of interiewing as a research technique and highlighting many of the issues that concern today's research interviewers...Inside Interviewing would be valuable for doctoral-level research methods classes, as well as for practicing researchers. It is an excellent starting point for examining specific issues, such as reflexivity."

A very useful text for those using interviews in research projects.

A very concise and precise insight into the important aspects of interviewing as a data collection method. This text explores interviews from a number of different perspectives and highlights the awareness in the reader that interviews cannot be approached or taken at face value. The text reminds the reader of the other essential elements associated with interviewing such as different ages, cultures, etc. I will be recommending this text to any of my students who are interested in using interviews as a data collection method.

SAGE Research Methods is a research methods tool created to help researchers, faculty and students with their research projects. SAGE Research Methods links over 175,000 pages of SAGE’s renowned book, journal and reference content with truly advanced search and discovery tools. Researchers can explore methods concepts to help them design research projects, understand particular methods or identify a new method, conduct their research, and write up their findings. Since SAGE Research Methods focuses on methodology rather than disciplines, it can be used across the social sciences, health sciences, and more.

With SAGE Research Methods, researchers can explore their chosen method across the depth and breadth of content, expanding or refining their search as needed; read online, print, or email full-text content; utilize suggested related methods and links to related authors from SAGE Research Methods' robust library and unique features; and even share their own collections of content through Methods Lists. SAGE Research Methods contains content from over 720 books, dictionaries, encyclopedias, and handbooks, the entire “Little Green Book,” and "Little Blue Book” series, two Major Works collating a selection of journal articles, and specially commissioned videos.
