Summary: The two fields of eating disorders and obesity have been treated as separate areas of knowledge and treatment by clinicians, researchers, and the professional literature. Empirical advances have made it evident, however, that there are many issues of relevance to both areas--such as the basic physiology of hunger and satiety, body image, and binge eating. Addressing the need for a comprehensive, up-to-date resource, this one-of-a-kind handbook presents and integrates
virtually all that is currently known about eating disorders and obesity in one authoritative, accessible, and eminently practical volume.

Edition/Copyright:95 Cover: Hardcover Publisher:Guilford Press Published: 04/14/1995 International: No
"....This multi-author textbook successfully conveys state-of-the-art information in brief yet authoritative chapters on fundamental issues, basic science, assessments, clinical characteristics, and treatments of all three of the eating disorders....Invaluable for clinicians and students."
--Readings, June 1996
"On occasion, a book is published that is so unique in its contribution and so completely fulfills its lofty goals that it is bound to become a classic the moment the first copy rolls off the press. This volume edited by Brownell and Fairburn is one of those classics....Eating Disorders and Obesity succeeds as a valuable and unique scholarly contribution. I recommend it highly for the reference library of anyone interested in obesity, eating disorders, or behavioral medicine."
--Contemporary Psychology, 1996, Vol 41, no. 12.
"The editors of this book have been successful in presenting and integrating all that is currently known about eating disorders and obesity into one well-organized, carefully edited, sound, user-friendly book. This text is a must for the libraries of practitioners working in the fields of obesity and eating disorders."
--American Dietetic Association Journal June, 1996
