Ken Howarth, one of the leading exponents of the technique, has written a wide-ranging practical introduction for amateurs and professionals which fully explains oral history recording and all its uses. The strength of this book is its breadth, and it is the first to address the relevance of oral history for so many different groups, from teachers, archive, library and museum workers to town planners, health and social care professionals, park rangers and tour operators. There are detailed practical sections on planning and conducting interviews, storage, cataloguing and retrieval, and the applications of oral history, as well as several case studies.
