Book Description

January 10, 1998 0415133521 978-0415133524

The Oral History Reader edited by Robert Perks and Alistair Thomson, is an international anthology of the key writings about the theory, method and use of oral history.

Arranged in five thematic sections, The Oral History Reader details issues in the theory and practice of oral history. The collection covers key debates in the postwar development of oral history including:

* problems posed by interviewing
* discussions of the politics of empowerment
* analytical strategies for interpreting memories
* concerns of archiving, practice, ethics and interpretation.

Each section contains an introduction which contextualises the selection by reviewing key isssues and relevant literature. Extensive cross-referencing and indexing provides an aid to research and a crucial comparative dimension.

This comprehensive volume illustrates similarities and differences in oral history work from around the world, with examples from North America, Britain, Australasia, Continental Europe, Latin America and Africa. It also details the subjects - such as labour history, women's history, gay and lesbian history, ethnic and indigenous people's history and disability history - to which oral history has made a significant contribution.

4.0 out of 5 stars use it as a text book! May 11, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
The essays on the public history aspects of oral history usage are a must read!
I hope that professors use this as a text book for an oral history class. I encourage them to allow students to pick from the various articles according to their particular interests. Perhaps a professor could require short papers in response to a few of the essays.
