This perspective considers oral history interviews as subjective, socially constructed and emergent events- that is, understanding, interpretation, and meaning of lived experience are interactively constructed.The impetus for this volume was the editors fascination with the multifaceted complexity of the oral history interview method coupled with the belief that, despite many books that address methodological issues, no single work takes as its focus those complex, interactive processes which constitute the oral history interview. The editors purpose in developing this anthology, therefore, was to provide a variety of essays which taken together address the possibilities and constraints inherent in oral history interviewing.
