This chapter describes how oral history can be used in geographical
research. After defining oral history, we outline the aspects that make it
unique and distinguish it from other forms of interviewing. These aspects
include establishing rapport, dealing with sensitive issues, understanding
the ethics of interviewing, ways to ask questions, and the importance of
sound quality.
