Product Description

Review

Christian Heath has written a wonderfully engaging and detailed account of how auctions are practically accomplished. The book provides a methodologically sophisticated investigation of a financially significant business activity. In so doing if offers an exemplary study of social interaction in a workplace setting. It will be of considerable interest to scholars and students of work and organizations, and everyone concerned with the practical application of ethnomethodology, conversation analysis and interaction analysis.
Tom Horlick-Jones, Cardiff University, Symbolic Interaction

The video analysis and the description of the activities is exquisitely done ... a wonderful example of video analysis from one its pioneers.
K. Neil Jenkings, Newcastle University, BSA Network

Book Description

In this book, Heath explores how the sale of art and antiques worth many billions of pounds each year is accomplished through social interaction. He demonstrates how an economic institution of some global importance, the auction, rests upon the fine details of talk, gesture and material action.
