Abstract:

Interviewing is an essential tool in the repertoire of the qualitative researcher, and yet the intricate relationship between the "hows" and the "whys" of the interview process is not always easily understood. Steinar Kvale's InterViews provides both theoretical underpinnings and practical aspects of the interview process.

After examining the role of the interview in the research process, Kvale considers some of the key philosophical issues relating to interviewing: the interview as conversation, hermeneutics, phenomenology, concerns about ethics as well as validity, and post-modernism. Having laid out the framework, the author takes the reader through the seven stages of the interviewing process, from designing a study to writing it up.

. Fundamental and essential, InterViews is written for students and professionals in qualitative and research methods, psychology, education research, nursing, social work, counseling, family studies, gerontology, evaluation, sociology, and anthropology.
