"Learning from Strangers is the definitive work on qualitative research interviewing. It draws on Robert Weiss's thirty years of experience interviewing and teaching others how to do it. Through those years, Dr. Weiss has shown consummate skill at eliciting insightful, deeply felt responses when interviewing for his successful books on such diverse topics as doing well at work, coping with marital separation, and loneliness. The most effective interviews, says Weiss, rely on creating cooperation - an open and trusting alliance between interviewer and respondent, dedicated to specific and honest accounts of both internal and external events." "Against the eclectic background of his work in national sample surveys, studies based on semi-structured interviewing, and participant observation, Weiss walks the reader through the method of qualitative interview studies: sample selection, development of an interview guide, the conduct of the interview, analysis, and preparation of data. Weiss gives examples of successful and less successful interviews, enhanced by a sidebar of his own running commentary on how each interaction between interviewer and respondent inhibits or promotes this essential alliance. He offers specific techniques and guidelines - equally helpful to the seasoned professional or beginning graduate student - which he has found useful over many years of asking people to "tell me about it."" "Learning from Strangers is a reference guide, an essential text, and a memoir of the experience of doing research. It recounts the emotional experience of being interviewed, the likelihood of respondents telling the truth, and the ethical defensibility of interviewing. Qualitative interview materials have helped Weiss bring to readers the pain of bereavement, the desperate restlessness of loneliness, and the confusions attendant on divorce. Learning from Strangers will be useful to all those who use qualitative research interviews to gather data."--Jacket

The experience of retirement by Robert Stuart Weiss( Book )

12 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 501 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In The Experience of Retirement, Robert S. Weiss provides a detailed description of how some people plan their retirement, what life in retirement is like, and what makes for a fulfilling retirement. His book can thus serve as a most useful guide. Weiss shows us both retirement's benefits and its possible costs, both the relief retirees can feel once free of work's stresses and constraints and the discomfort that can be caused by loss of the positive aspects of working life."--Jacket

Challenges of the third age : meaning and purpose in later life by Robert Stuart Weiss( Book )

13 editions published between 2000 and 2002 in English and held by 405 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The newly retired are entering a time of life that is virtually uncharted, a time in which they are free from social expectations and, to a large extent, from obligations to others. Life's meanings are no longer provided by work and family. Instead, men and women have the freedom, and the need, to find new activities that they can imbue with meaning. The term, ""Third Age"" has been given to this time of life during which for most there is relatively good health, financial stability, and reduced family obligations. The problems and possibilities of this ""Third Age"" serve as the material for

Detroit Area Study, 1956: Orientation on Moral Issues in a Metropolis and The Meaning of Work by Robert Cooley Angell( )

5 editions published between 1974 and 1984 in 3 languages and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study of 797 adults in the Detroit metropolitan area provides information on their attitudes toward work and their motivations for working, as well as their orientation toward many social and political issues. The study was a combination of two separate studies: ORIENTATION ON MORAL ISSUES IN A METROPOLIS by Robert Angell, and THE MEANING OF WORK by Robert Kahn and Robert Weiss. Respondents were asked about the importance of work in their life, the things in their job that made them feel important, the things they wanted from their job that it did not provide, the other areas of their life that made them feel useful, and the people in their lives that influenced their choice of occupation. A number of questions that focused on women working outside the home probed respondents' feelings about how a husband was affected by a working wife, and if there were kinds of jobs that women should not have. Other questions probed respondents' views about what the United States should do in the event of an attack by the Soviet Union on a western European country, a parent not allowing a child to recite the Pledge of Allegiance in school, the proposed racial integration of schools, appointment or election of government officials, effecting changes in the United States Constitution, trial by a jury or a judge, ways to effect world peace, the most important problem for the United States in the future, and a Communist revolution in a Latin American country. Additional items explored respondents' opinion of the Detroit newspaper and the Detroit newspaper strike, and their satisfaction with the neighborhood. Respondents were also asked about their political party preference, as well as their use and ownership of telephones. Demographic variables specify age, sex, race, education, place of birth, marital status, number of children, nationality, religious prefere ...
