Contributors from universities and hospitals in the US, Europe, and Australia, most not declaring their field, consider in turn the eating disorders anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, and binge eating disorder; obesity; and body image disturbances and body dysmorphic disorder. For each they discuss etiology, risk, and prevention; assessment and diagnosis; and treatment. A final section explores special topics, such as sociocultural aspects, a feminist approach, childhood and adolescence, child sexual abuse, the media's role in perpetuating and preventing negative body image and disordered eating, and cosmetic surgery.
