Interviewing II

Interviewing II

Four Volume Set

© 2009 | 1 664 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd
Interviewing has a strong claim to be the most widely-practised social science research methods. The ubiquity of this basic activity means that this field has one of the most developed bodies of methodological literature having ramifications throughout the social sciences. Nigel Fielding, the acknowledged expert in the field, has again collected together a set of contemporary classic readings. Interviewing has been established as the authoritative and balanced research resource in this subject. It is comprehensive and generic; however, its coverage does not entirely reflect the apportionment of intellectual effort and interest in the field. Interviewing II delves further into the subject and concentrates on on articles representing topics that have proven controversial and thus attracted many contributions.
