This collection of new studies in ethnomethodology addresses sociology's classical questions by developing that strand of ethnomethodological inquiry dealing with membership categorization. This book provides detailed studies of members' use of membership categories across various settings from the O.J. Simpson trial, via TV commercials and news headlines, to school staff and referral meetings. The studies show that category use is occasional, that culture is always internal to action; accordingly sociology's key theoretical problems and substantive areas are re-specified in terms of members' methods of membership categorization. This is the first collection of original, unpublished studies by internationally renowned practitioners of ethnomethodology of members' uses of the descriptive resources of language to describe persons. Co-published with The International Institute for Ethnomethodology and Conversation Analysis.

The Dead Mother brings together original essays in honour of André Green. Written by distinguished psychoanalysts, the collection develops the theme of his most famous paper of the same title, and describes the value of the dead mother to other areas of clinical interest: psychic reality, borderline phenomena, passions and identification. The concept of the 'dead mother' describes a clinical phenomenon, sometimes difficult to identify, but always present in a substantial number of patients. It describes a process by which the image of a living and loving mother is transformed into a distant figure; a toneless, practically inanimate, dead parent. In reality, the mother remains alive, but she has psychically 'died' for the child. This produces a depression in the child, who carries these feelings within him into adult life, as the experience of the loss of the mother's love is followed by the loss of meaning in life. Nothing makes sense any more for the child, but life seems to continue under the appearance of normality. The Dead Mother is a valuable contribution to literature on psychoanalytic and psychotheraputic approaches to grief, loss and depression.

"The Dead Detective is William Heffernan’s first novel in seven years, and wherever he’s been, he hasn’t forgotten how to write a good, gritty police procedural . . . This edgy police drama succeeds in capturing the hysteria the grips Tampa residents when a celebrity criminal . . . is found dead in a cyprus swamp with her throat cut and the word ‘Evil’ carved into her forehead." --New York Times Book Review “The Dead Detective is a meaty story that offers an intriguing and conflicted protagonist, a darkly fascinating victim, solid police procedural detail, a knowing look at the Tampa Bay area and its politics, an unlikely murderer, and a creepy denouement that hints that Harry [protagonist] will be back.” --Booklist "In his first new novel in seven years . . . Heffernan delivers a readable, tidy police procedural that echoes any number of popular television series, from The Mentalist to Criminal Minds, whose many fans will find this series debut enjoyable." --Library Journal "After a lengthy hiatus, Edgar-winner Heffernan makes a welcome return ... Tough, troubled Harry Doyle will keep readers in line." --Kirkus Reviews "Heffernan is a master of scene, setting, characterizations, plot, and dialogue." --Nelson DeMille Harry Doyle was murdered as a ten-year-old child and brought back to life by two Tampa cops. Twenty years later he has dedicated his life to putting killers behind bars as a homicide detective who has the unwanted ability to hear the postmortem whispers of murder victims. Dubbed "The Dead Detective" by his fellow cops, Doyle now faces his most difficult case--a beautiful murder victim who was a notorious child molester. It is a case that will shake Harry to his very core. WILLIAM HEFFERNAN, a three-time Pulitzer Prize nominee, is the author of fifteen novels, including such bestsellers as The Corsican and The Dinosaur Club (a New York Times bestseller).

ABOUT THE BOOK The first season of Dexter was a sleeper hit for Showtime that surpassed their greatest expectations for rating-related success. Season 2 followed the same trend and solidified Dexter as a franchise and lead character Dexter Morgan, played by Michael C. Hall, as a pop-culture icon. With great success comes additional pressure, however, and as the Season 3 premiere date loomed, fans were asking how the production team could top the past two seasons without duplicating themselves. If Showtime was anxious about the shows performance, the Season 3 premiere quelled any doubts with TV Guide reporting a new ratings record for the show with 1.22 million viewers, beating the previous record by more than 20 percent. The finale delivered even more viewers, with Variety estimating that more than 1.5 million people tuned in to see what would become of Dexter Morgan as the season came to a close. Add in Golden Globe nominations for best dramatic series and best actor, and Dexter was unanimously considered a blockbuster success by business standards. MEET THE AUTHOR Dave Beaudrie is a graduate and valedictorian of Michigan State University with a B.A. in Advertising. He also studied Theatre and has performed in multiple productions around the country. He is a professional screenwriter as well with several projects either produced or in pre-production. He is licensed as a security specialist in the state of California and worked in the field for several years. Beaudrie is an avid mixed martial arts fan and has written extensively on the subject. He writes comedy as well under a pen name and resides in Los Angeles. EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK Life has gone back to normal for Dexter Morgan following the deaths of Sgt. Doakes and Lila in Season 2. Well, as normal as life can get for a Miami blood-splatter analyst who moonlights as a serial-killing vigilante, that is. Things are good with Rita and Dexter feels safe to hunt again. And hunt he does. Things get sticky, however, when Dexter stalks a murdering drug dealer named Freebo. Freebo gets into a fight with another man, who ends up attacking Dexter. Dexter kills him in self-defense: his first kill of an otherwise innocent man with no planning or preparation. Meaning: No Code. To make matters worse, the victim is revealed to be the brother of assistant district attorney Miguel Prado.
