Description - Interviewing for Social Scientists by Hilary Arksey
Students at postgraduate, and increasingly at undergraduate, level are required to undertake research projects and interviewing is the most frequently used research method. Interviewing for Social Scientists provides a comprehensive and authoritative introduction to interviewing.

Richly illustrated with relevant examples, each chapter includes handy statements of "advantages" and "disadvantages" of the approaches discussed.
