"This most recent contribution to the publisher's 'Practicing Oral History Series,' written by the proprietor of an oral-history consulting firm, points out the special considerations of interviewing immigrants. The importance of awareness of cultural differences and trauma experienced by refugees, as well as the decision to use an interpreter, are all examined... Handbooks like this will ensure that the practice rests on a firm foundation of knowledge. Summing Up: Highly recommended. All libraries. All levels."
"...by producing a text that outlines the issues one faces in interviewing immigrant narrators, she provides strategies to deal with these challenges, and, at the same time, explores some of the profound insights such interviews can create. McKirdy has done both the oral history community and immigrants an enduring service."
