Anna Bryson and Sean McConville-s wide interviewing
experience has been condensed into this book. The
material set out here has been acquired by trial, error
and reflection over a period of more than four decades.
The interviewees have ranged from the delightfully
straightforward to the painfully difficult to the near
impossible - with a sprinkling of those that were
impossible. Successful interviewing draws on the survival
skills of everyday life. This guide will help you to
adapt, develop and apply these innate skills. Including a
range of useful information such as sample waivers,
internet resources, useful hints and checklists, it
provides sound and plain-speaking support for the oral
historian, social scientist and investigator.

What role does playful behavior and playful thought take
in animal and human development? How does play relate to
creativity and, in turn, to innovation? Unravelling the
different meanings of -play-, this book focuses on non-
aggressive playful play. The authors emphasise its
significance for development and evolution, before
examining the importance of playfulness in creativity.
This discussion sheds new light on the links between
creativity and innovation, distinguishing between the
generation of novel behaviour and ideas on the one hand,
and the implementation of these novelties on the other.

interlinked and relational contracts between the agents
(in particular, between the state and the business) can
compensate for flawed markets to achieve high growth.
This kind of relational capitalism is significant in the
investment-based stage of development, when mobilization
of resources to exploit the existing technologies is the
key for growth. The book presents a general theory of

This book looks at jobs as drivers of development, not as
derived labor demand, and considers all types of jobs,
not just formal wage employment. The Report provides a
framework that cuts across sectors and shows that the
best policy responses vary across countries, depending on
their levels of development, endowments, demography, and
institutions. Policy fundamentals matter in all cases, as
they enable a vibrant private sector, the source of most
jobs in the world. Labor policies can help as well, even
if they are less critical than is often assumed.
Development policies, from making smallholder farming
viable to fostering functional cities to engaging in
global markets, hold the key to success.

This book focuses on the relation between technology and
institutions and their mutual influence during processes
of development and change. An understanding of technology
as a combination of skill and equipment jointly with the
influence of the institutional framework allows
identifying a number of potentially adverse influences on
the development potential and capacity in an economy.
These are integrated as the isolation of single factors
will not permit to formulate a generalized perspective on
development processes. The possibility of differing
institutional environments and differing technological
capacities likely result in conditions that require
context-dependent approaches for strengthening the
development potential in a given situation. The
development process Argentina has undergone since 1946 is
used to illustrate how institutions and technology

emergency, and the collective responsibility of citizens.
The book provides a rigorous, yet accessible analysis of
a range of moral positions, from the acceptance of
terrorism when its consequences are good on balance to
its absolute rejection. Primoratz argues that terrorism
is almost absolutely wrong. It may be morally justified
only when an entire people is facing a true moral
disaster, and this should be understood in a highly
