 Abstract:
 
 This collection assembles early, yet previously unpublished research into
 the practices that organize conversational interaction by many of the
 central figures in the development and advancement of Conversation Analysis
 as a discipline. Using the methods of sequential analysis as first
 developed by Harvey Sacks, the authors produce detailed empirical accounts
 of talk in interaction that make fundamental contributions to our
 understanding of turntaking, action formation and sequence organization.
 One distinguishing feature of this collection is that each of the
 contributors worked directly with Sacks as a collaborator or was trained by
 him at the University of California or both. Taken together this collection
 gives readers a taste of CA inquiry in its early years, while nevertheless
 presenting research of contemporary significance by internationally known
 conversation analysts.
