"More specifically, this book provides an excellent recapitulation of empirical work in four key areas of institutional talk.  ( Journal of Sociolinguistics , 1 February 2013) Lastly, as a more general recommendation, I should say that anyone interested in the intersection of context, identity and talk–in interaction would not be spending their time poorly by exploring some of the chapters in this exceptionally well–designed book, and I feel it is safe to say that this book will remain the go–to foundational text for Institutional Conversational Analysis for some time to come.  (Journal of Language and Politics, 2012)As a whole, Talk in Action: Interactions, Identities and Institutionsis a highly recommended, state–of–the–art book for researchers who wish to explore naturally occurring processes and self–construction in face–to–face and telephone institutional communication.  ( Discourse and Communication , 1 November 2012)As such, this volume provides a valuable guide to analytical tools for understanding institutional talk. Useful for students and emerging scholars of CA and institutional talk, this volume sheds light on both the analytical approach and conceptual themes that are relevant within these domains and beyond.  ( Discourse Studies , 2012)"Among the great assets of this publication is the comprehensive coverage of research on the areas in focus, conversation analytic or otherwise. This makes the book a perfect starting point for anyone interested in institutional interaction of the varieties described here. True to its conversation analytic roots, the book manages to combine this large–scale overview of the literature with detailed analysis, which is always highly relevant and revealing. This book is an impressive scholarly achievement, spanning a vast amount of research and a wide variety of institutional settings. Any student of talk –– institutional or otherwise –– will find this an indispensable source of conversation analytic insight." (Linguist List, November 2010)Heritage′s and Clayman′s book is a comprehensive introduction to the conversation analytic approach to institutional talk, focusing on emergency telephone calls, doctor–patient interactions, interaction in court, and news interviews / mass communication . . .overall, however, this book is an impressive scholarly achievement, spanning a vast amount of research and a wide variety of institutional settings. Any student of talk – institutional or otherwise – will find this an indispensable source of conversation analytic insight." (LinguistList.), 1 November 2010)
