Morgan Kaufmann Publishers announces the publication of a new title in
our series of "Readings" books:

edited by Alex Waibel and Kai-Fu Lee
(Carnegie Mellon Univ.)

After two decades of considerable activity, speech recognition is
beginning to show promise as a practical technology and interest in the
field is growing dramatically. READINGS IN SPEECH RECOGNITION provides
a collection of key, seminal papers that have influenced or redirected
the field and that illustrate the central insights that have emerged
over the years.

The editors provide an introduction to the field, its concerns and
research problems. Subsequent chapters are devoted to the main schools
of thought and design philosophies that have motivated different
approaches to speech recognition system design. Each chapter includes
an introduction to the papers that highlights the major insights or
needs that have motivated an approach to a problem and describes the
commonalities and differences of that approach to others in the book.

I just noticed at the bookstore yesterday that the late O. B. Hardison's
book, _Disappearing through the Skylight_ is out in paper. Just in time
for the holiday season! By the way, it won the Los Angeles Times Book
Award for 1990. If you're looking for a holiday present for any
humanities computing folks, this book would be most appropriate.
