Since its first publication in 1983, this volume has been an invaluable source of information on the dynamics of eating disorders, written by two therapists who have long specialised in treating them. This accessible and empowering book provides important information on adolescent danger signals, socialisation and the family, physiological effects, the challenges of leaving home, drug therapy, and nutritional counselling. For the new edition of Bulimia Anorexia, Marlene Boskind-White has added material on brief outpatient therapy-which the authors pioneered and which is now often the only option under managed care-and the impact of new therapies and new drugs. She also includes a chapter on intensive psychotherapy with anorexics. With new material on the dangerous "thin is never thin enough" messages pervading our culture, she discusses the alarming increase in eating disorders and explains why they urgently need new attention as a feminist issue.
