I've bought another book on phonetics. The author is Ken Lodge, and the title is A Critical Introduction to Phonetics. It was published in 2009 by the Continuum International Publishing Group. I would have been greatly astonished if the title had been An Uncritical Introduction ... .
Here's the table of contents. More on the book in a later blog entry.
(Phew, what a stack of books on my bedside table)
