Eating disorders such as anorexia nervosa and bulimia nervosa pose a grave danger to the health of thousands of Americans each year. This sourcebook brings together in a single volume an extensive amount of information and resources regarding the diagnosis and treatment of these potentially life-threatening conditions. This volume is a substantially updated and expanded version of Controlling Eating Disorders with Facts, Advice, and Resources (Oryx, 1992).
