Speech Pathology. By Lee Edward Travis. New York: D. Appleton & Co., 1931. Pp. xxxiv + 331.

According to the author, the chief aim of this book is to “treat the human organism as a dynamic whole which functions as a unit under graded centers of physiological dominance,” and then to show the importance in speech of a center of chief dominance.
