Editorial Reviews

Booknews
A textbook for a first course, intended to clarify the rather untidy terminology of the discipline and to provide a broad and conservative foundation from which students can progress to different specialization or theoretical approaches. Crystal authored the 1980 and 1988 editions, and emphasized the processes involved in communication as a basis for understanding disorders in them; Varley joined with the 1990 third edition and adds more clinical and therapeutic perspective. Distributed in the US by Taylor and Francis. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
