Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Like its predecessor, this book is truly an impressive accomplishment. Barlow, a world expert in the etiology and treatment of anxiety disorders, has integrated cutting-edge theory and research into a single presentation that is both wide in scope and precise in focus. While penetrating in its analysis, the book is also highly readable. Researchers, clinical practitioners, and students of all levels will find it an invaluable resource for understanding both the nature of anxiety as a human experience, and the way it manifests itself in specific disorders. Certain to become a classic." —Michael E. Addis, PhD, Department of Psychology, Clark University

"Barlow has once again produced a masterpiece. This volume combines comprehensive reviews of theory and research with innovative, clinically meaningful, empirically based models of each anxiety disorder. Like its predecessor, it will serve as the preeminent guide for research and treatment development for years to come. This book should be required reading for clinicians and clinical scientists working with anxiety disorders. Its clearly presented, readable content also makes it a highly appropriate text for advanced undergraduate and graduate-level psychopathology courses." —T. D. Borkovec, PhD, Department of Psychology, The Pennsylvania State University
