Linguistic LingField(s):  Pragmatics

Query:   Dear linguists,

Is anybody aware of a socio-pragmatic study or bibliography or literature
review of apologies? I particularly need a speech-act orientation toward
politeness. Additionally, is there any language in which apology is
(honorifically and/or respectfully) made without any wrongdoing being made
in advance?

Thank you for your sincere cooperation.
