Anxiety disorders are at once among the most disabling and the most prevalent of psychiatric disorders—more common than either mood or substance use disorders. Often misdiagnosed and undertreated, they account for a staggering one-third of all costs related to psychiatric disorders.

This one-stop resource for both clinicians and researchers details not only the rigorous diagnostic schemas, sophisticated psychobiological models, and effective pharmacotherapy and psychotherapy interventions developed during the past few decades but also the latest advances in research, theory, and clinical knowledge in this diverse field. In this remarkable collection, 77 U.S. and international experts cover the phenomenology, etiology, psychotherapy, and pharmacotherapy of every major anxiety disorder (e.g., generalized anxiety disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder [OCD], panic disorder, social phobia, and posttraumatic stress disorder [PTSD]). Sample topics include animal models of fear conditioning, which provide fascinating parallels with clinical phenomena such as PTSD, and functional brain imaging, which demonstrates that pharmacotherapy and psychotherapy for OCD produce similar changes in the brain. The authors also discuss anxiety disorders in relation to children, adolescents, and seniors; different medical settings; substance abuse; and culture and society.

This compendium of studies at the cutting edge of anxiety disorder research and clinical practice will be welcomed by psychiatric and medical clinicians, researchers, and educators as a uniquely valuable reference, and by other mental health care professionals who are interested in the latest developments in understanding and treating these complex disorders.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: William Miles, MD (Rush University Medical Center)
Description: This handsome, hardcover book thoroughly reviews the phenomenology, etiology, pathophysiology, and treatment of the anxiety disorders.
Purpose: The purpose is to present to the reader a collection of contributions at the cutting edge of anxiety disorder research. Since the anxiety disorders are among the most prevalent of all psychiatric syndromes, these are certainly worthy objectives.
Audience: The book is quite detailed, and therefore is written for psychiatric and medical clinicians, researchers, and educators. It is probably too advanced for medical students, but senior psychiatric residents might find it a good resource.
Features: The book is divided into 10 parts. The first part provides an overview of the anxiety disorders, including history, neurology, evolutionary concepts, and psychodynamic explanations. The remaining parts thoroughly review the different anxiety disorders as found in DSM-IV, devoting separate chapters to topics such as phenomenology, pathophysiology, and treatment. The last part of the book is devoted to the economic and cultural impact of anxiety disorders. Each chapter is thoroughly referenced, and an index is found at the end of the book. There are no illustrations, but numerous tables and figures are scattered throughout.
Assessment: This strikingly detailed book is a tremendous contribution to the field of psychiatry. It provides a thorough review of some of the most economic burdensome diseases in medicine. Covering the latest research in the pathophysiology and neurobiology of anxiety disorders, and the latest advances in pharmacotherapy, this book would be an invaluable resource and reference guide for any clinician who wishes to better understand these diseases.
From The Critics
An overview of the psychobiology of anxiety disorders. Sections are included on each of the main anxiety disorders, including chapters on their phenomenology, pathogenesis, pharmacotherapy, and psychotherapy. The bulk of the material is related to generalized anxiety disorder, mixed anxiety-depressive disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, panic disorder and agoraphobia, social phobia, and posttraumatic stress disorder. Additional chapters cover neural, evolutionary, cognitive, and psychodynamic concepts of anxiety disorders. Final sections look at special populations such as children, the elderly, and substance abusers and social and economic costs of anxiety disorders. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
