The book focuses on and tracks the relationship and the quality of discourse that evolve between interviewer and interviewee within a series of interview situations. It presents theoretical arguments and empirical findings based on twenty-five face-to-face conversations with a freshwater fish wholesaler in the northeastern Peruvian rainforest town of Iquitos. Supplemented by the interview transcripts in Spanish, it is a valuable methodological source for sociologists, anthropologists, linguists, economists and historians who are interested in interdisciplinary qualitative research.
