Oliver Bloodstein - The Nature of Stuttering (25 minute audio) - Part of a lecture entitled "An Anticipatory Struggle Concept of Stuttering" from a symposium on stuttering held at the University of Wisconsin, in Madison, in the summer of 1959. It was supported by an Office of Vocational Rehabilitation Grant. Several presenters, most who had made a name for themselves in the area of stuttering, converged in Madison that summer from various university settings.
Bloodstein, Oliver (1992) Stuttering: The Search for a Cause and Cure, Pearson. (from the back cover: The author presents an objective, research-oriented, and evenhanded approach to understanding the nature and treatment of stuttering. It is the first book to contain a full chapter on stutterer's self-help programs and contains the clearest and most up-to-date review of brain research on stutterers.
Bloodstein, Oliver (2007) Handbook on Stuttering Delmar Cengage Learning, 6 edition (Book description from the Amazon Bookstore: "Rarely does a textbook transcend the ordinary to be universally considered a "classic". The esteemed A Handbook on Stuttering, now in its 6th edition, continues to be the only existing work that offers a comprehensive review of evidence-based knowledge about the etiology, nature, and treatment of stuttering. Since the last edition was published there have been numerous important advances in research on stuttering, particularly with regard to brain research and language development. This edition captures these new developments, without losing the historical information that makes it so unique."
