It is now 11 years since the publication of the first edition of Normal and Abnormal Swallowing: Imaging in Diagnosis and Therapy. These 11 years have seen an enormous change in the specialty of the study of dysphagia. First, we have seen the tragic loss of two of the pioneering giants in the field: Wylie J. Dodds, MD, of the Medical College of Wisconsin, Milwaukee, and Martin W. Donner, MD, of The lohns Hopkins University School of Medicine, Baltimore, Maryland, a former coeditor of this book. Second, there has been a steady expansion in the number of professionals interested in and working in this spe- cialty. The last 11 years have also seen the steady growth of the multidiscipli- nary journal Dysphagia, devoted to swallowing and its disorders, as well as the formation of the Dysphagia Research Society, which held its tenth annual meeting in October 2001. The dysphagia special interest division (SID 13) of the American Speech and Hearing Association (ASHA) now has some 3,000 members. At the same time, the world population is aging. Dysphagia will be an important health issue in this aging population.

MEDIA REVIEWS

From the reviews of the second edition:

"The author writes that her purpose is to present physicians and allied health professionals with anatomy and physiology of the swallowing apparatus. This is urgently needed. ... it is not possible to claim that accurate information is unavailable. Read this book! ... The book has a handy format. It contains many well-reproduced illustrations of normal and abnormal findings in patients ... . This book is a must for everybody who is ... a radiologist visionary enough to focus on the diagnosis and treatment of dysphagia." (Olle Ekberg, Acta Radiologica, Vol. 44 (4), 2003)

"This is the second edition of `Normal and abnormal swallowing' edited by Bronwyn Jones ... . The chapters on adaptation, compensation and decompensation, pharyngoesophageal inter-relationships and ageing are extremely helpful in everyday practice ... . The concepts and information within these chapters are really one of the strengths of the book ... . one of the clearest and most detailed accounts of video-fluoroscopic analysis of swallowing in health and disease and, as such, is a valuable ... read for anyone participating in this field." (Prof. C I Bartram, RAD Magazine, Vol. 29 (336), 2003)
