David H. Barlow, PhD, Center for Anxiety and Related Disorders, Department of Psychology, Boston University, Boston, MA 'A lucidly written, learned treatise of panoramic scope, [this] is the most comprehensive book ever written on the topic of anxiety disorders. It will be essential reading for students, researchers, and clinicians in the field of mental health for many years to come.' --- American Journal of Psychiatry 'An essential reference book for clinicians working with patients suffering from anxiety disorders.' --- Psychotherapy & Psychosomatics 'Like its predecessor, this book is truly an impressive accomplishment. Barlow, a world expert in the etiology and treatment of anxiety disorders, has integrated cutting-edge theory and research into a single presentation that is both wide in scope and precise in focus. While penetrating in its analysis, the book is also highly readable. Researchers, clinical practitioners, and students of all levels will find it an invaluable resource for understanding both the nature of anxiety as a human experience, and the way it manifests itself in specific disorders. Certain to become a classic.' --- Michael E. Addis, PhD, Clark University 'Barlow has once again produced a masterpiece. This volume combines comprehensive reviews of theory and research with innovative, clinically meaningful, empirically based models of each anxiety disorder. Like its predecessor, it will serve as the preeminent guide for research and treatment development for years to come. This book should be required reading for clinicians and clinical scientists working with anxiety disorders. Its clearly presented, readable content also makes it a highly appropriate text for advanced undergraduate and graduate-level psychopathology courses.' --- T. D. Borkovec, PhD, The Pennsylvania State University Knowledge about anxiety has increased exponentially since the initial publication of this classic work. This extensively revised second edition now brings the field thoroughly up to date. Part I builds on the groundbreaking conceptual framework presented in the original volume, explicating the nature of anxiety and panic in light of emotion theory, recent advances in cognitive science and neuroscience, and increasingly important findings from developmental psychology and learning. Existing chapters have been updated and restructured, and a new chapter added on etiological factors. Part II outlines what is currently known about the presentation, etiology, assessment, and treatment of each of the specific disorders. This section features chapters coauthored by Dr. Barlow and other leading experts associated with the Center for Anxiety and Related Disorders at Boston University.
