This oral family history handbook takes a different approach from similar books by including new material on memory and advice on jogging memories for the interviewer and the interviewee. There are also examples from real interviews. As do the standard books, this also gives practical advice on handling microphones and audio and videotape, interviewing techniques, suggested interview questions, and preserving and using tapes. For the standard topics, the best available work is William Fletcher's Recording Your Family History: A Guide to Preserving Oral History with Videotape, Audiotape, Suggested Topics and Questions, Interview Techniques (Ten Speed Pr., 1989). On balance, however, Rosenbluth's book could be useful in libraries and for the home market.- Judith P. Reid, Library of Congress
