In the seven years following the publication of the much-lauded major work, Conversation Analysis, a number of exciting developments in field have given cause for editors Paul Drew and John Heritage to revisit this important topic. This new four-volume collection, containing all new articles and framed by a new contextualizing introductory chapter, includes works focusing on areas which were in their infancy at the publication of this set's predecessor, and topics which have gained much interest in the field over the past decade, such as language and identity, gender, multi-lingualism and intercultural communication, to name a few. In its deft construction and careful balance of thematic volumes, this truly multidisciplinary set represents the wealth of contemporary research in the field and the contribution conversation analysis's methodology has made to an increasing range of substantive areas of research. Volume One: Social Action and Epistemics Volume Two: Responses Volume Three: Identities in Interaction Volume Four: Institutions and Applications
