"The present ambitious effort warehouses pivotal materials that take the reader through the principal areas of CA [Conversation Analysis] research and publication. The first volume addresses turn-taking and conversation repair, which are the formative basis of CA. Drawing from across the globe, this set also demonstrates the international scope of CA by mixing in among standard texts materials showing its global growth and future directions. Although these materials have been previously published, the value of collecting them into one source cannot be overstated, particularly since work employing CA is spread across the disciplines. Essential."
