Originally intending to produce the first comprehensive scholarly reference guide to the antecedents, practices, and theory of oral history, the editors have gone even further, creating a highly readable and useful tool for scholars, students, and the general public. Covering the vast scope of this increasingly popular field, the eminent contributors discuss almost every aspect of a field that once was the province of historians but now has become increasingly democratized and available across numerous disciplines.

This handbook is an inspired combination of the practical and the theoretical. An essential companion for anyone interested in the multifarious, cross-disciplinary research movement that has come to be known as 'oral history.' -- Jacquelyn Hall, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill
Given the range of academic disciplines embracing oral history, college and university libraries should give this book serious consideration. It belongs in the reference library of every oral history program. * CHOICE *
A simple conversation can be a key resource in gathering information about the past-yet obtaining, documenting, and preserving this information can be much more complicated. This compilation of essays by top historians dissects oral history, from its deeply rooted origins to its numerous modern applications. * Museum News *
The editors set out to collect essays that could serve as an introduction to the contemporary practice and theory of oral history and succeeded in assembling a guide to the state of the field... The <Handbook for Oral History chapters were written expressly for this book and with its goals in mind, giving this anthology relative thematic coherence... Indeed, among the volume's many strengths is its tendency to promote and extend oral history's most theoretical and practical questions. * Register of the Kentucky Historical Society *
