Dear Colleagues, At the risk of incurring the wrath of Ed Burns, I would like to inform you of the publication of a new book that may be of some interest. It is called "Cochlear Hearing Loss". The following is an extract from the preface: "In 1995 I published a book called "Perceptual Consequences of Cochlear Damage" (Oxford University Press). The book reviewed the perceptual changes associated with cochlear hearing loss and related these to the underlying physiological mechanisms. The book was aimed primarily at researchers in the field, and much of the material contained in it was rather technical. While the book was well reviewed, and I received favourable comments from colleagues, it became clear that it was not ideal as a textbook for students. This new book covers similar topics to "Perceptual Consequences of Cochlear Damage", but some of the more technical material has been omitted, and much more effort has been made to explain basic concepts. I have attempted to write at a level that is accessible and comprehensible to students in Audiology and in Speech and Hearing Science. I hope therefore, that the book will be considered suitable as a textbook for such students." In North America, the book is available from Taylor and Francis, 1900 Frost Road, Suite 101, Bristol, PA 19007-1598 tel. 215-785-5800 Fax. 215 785 5800 In the rest of the world, the book is available from Whurr Publishers Ltd., 19B Compton Terrace, London N1 2UN, UK. =20 Tel 0171 359 5979 Fax 0171 226 5290 email info(at) The price in the UK is =A324-50 (plus =A32 postage and packing for orders outside the UK). I am not sure of the price in North America, but it should be comparable. =20 Brian C. J.
