Abstract

We have now entered the boom days of Australian oral history. To date, the small Oral History Handbook (1985) compiled by South Australia's Oral History Association has been a valuable stopgap, but Oral History: A Handbook is an overdue and welcome Australian Introduction to the methods of oral history. Aimed largely at the novice interviewer or at anyone contemplating organising an oral history project, the handbook is also directed at teachers considering the use of oral history techniques in the classroom.
