View all copies of this ISBN edition:

Interviewing is used very widely in qualitative research, and takes many different forms. It is also a method that is constantly evolving, in response both to theoretical and technological developments.

King and Horrocks present a clear and thorough guide to the use of interviews in contemporary qualitative research. Writing in an accessible style, with many practical examples, the authors explore:

- The key debates in the philosophy and theory underlying interview methods

- How to design and carry out interviews

- The special requirements of group and remote (telephone and online) interviewing

- The central issues of reflexivity and ethics.

There is a substantial chapter introducing the principles and practice of the thematic analysis of interview data, and the book concludes with a detailed consideration of the use of interviews in two major qualitative research traditions: phenomenological and narrative approaches.

Interviewing in Qualitative Research is a must-have for postgraduate and advanced undergraduate students planning to use interview methods for themselves. It is aimed at a broad range of disciplines with examples drawn from across the social, educational and health sciences.

[The authors] provide a functional discussion of multiple topics related to interviewing in their book...However, [they] present more than just a useful discussion of how to design, conduct, and analyze interviews. They simultaneously introduce the importance of philosophical approaches and ethics in relation to the topics discussed, making connections between the important notions and the qualitative research process they describe. Their practical approach to the topics presented makes their book a wonderful resource for novice researchers
