In addition to the problem of language, conducting oral histories with immigrant narrators often requires special considerations: past violence, cultural sensitivity, and lack of trust. Yet, these narrators are often witnesses to, or participants in, important historical events, or can describe otherwise-undocumented social phenomena. The first book to focus specifically on oral history practices with immigrant narrators, it -gives both the novice and experienced oral historian insights into their narrators' needs;-provides the tools to effectively plan and execute an oral history project in an immigrant community;-includes case studies, additional resources, and templates of important oral history processes.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"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."- CHOICE Reviews
