MEDIA REVIEWS

"Practicing Oral History succeeds admirably. It gives those interested in doing oral history at any type of historical organization a primer. On top of that, it provides readers an introduction to one of oral history's most beloved practitioners and some of her valued colleagues. It can furnish one then with a community to join, not just a book to read."- Troy Reeves, University Wisconsin-Madison, The Public Historian

"Barbara Sommer's (2015) Practicing Oral History in Historical Organizations is a welcome addition to the field of qualitative research methodology. Generally the topics that public historians, ethnographers, and other practitioners of oral history probe are fragmented and lack human voice. Sommer's book speaks to practitioners who collect, archive, and use oral history."- Solaiman M. Fazel, Anthropology Book Forum
