The publication of this Oxford Handbook reflects the now widespread acceptance and respectability of oral history as a methodology at the heart of historical, and other academic, disciplines. * James Mark, English Historical Review *
a rich compendium of the theoretical, methodological, and technological developments ... Many of the authors in the Oxford Handbook draw on their experiences of doing research and running programs. This gives the Oxford Handbook a personal touch that might make it more accessible to a broader audience, including students and community researchers. * Alexander Freund, Oral History Review *
