  • The Handbook of Interview Research offers a comprehensive examination of the interview in the context of a challenging postmodern environment. Encyclopedic in breadth, the Handbook provides expert discussions of the conceptual and methodological issues surrounding interview practice in relation to forms of interviewing, new technology, diverse data-gathering and analytic strategies, and the various ways interviewing relates to distinctive respondents. This engaging presentation guides the reader from an understanding of the interview as an instrument for gathering data, to reflections on the process at the cutting edge of information technology, to how it will shape the information we gather about individuals and society.
