Description: The past two decades have witnessed an enormous increase in the number of cases of eating disorders in industrial societies. In this new edition of his successful Anorexia and Bulimia, Richard Gordon brings together historical and cultural perspectives, as well as his own clinical experience, in order to examine the sociocultural roots of this apparent epidemic.

The extensively revised new edition includes new information and discussion of the latest ideas in this rapidly growing research field. There is extensive coverage of the clinical aspects of eating disorders, in particular their relationship to obsessive-compulsive disorder, plus data on recovery and mortality. The book also provides accounts of the latest research on the epidemiological status of eating disorders and the subsequent debate that this work has engendered. Further new features include the analysis of the role of sexual abuse in eating disorders, the relationship of obesity to anorexia and bulimia, and consideration of the recent debates surrounding the politics of eating disorders.
