Taking an interdisciplinary approach to talk and its role in certain workplace practice and relationships, this book consists of 14 contributions that address the thematic focus of how professional knowledge and identities are constituted in discourse, vis-a-vis a given institutional order.

Even this relatively long review cannot capture the scope, depth and excellent quality of Sarangi and Roberts' collection. This volume should be required reading for anyone carrying out research within an ethnomethodological, discourse analytical, pragmatic, or related framework. A detailed and useful subject index [...] complements this volume.
