"The testimonials by Paulson and other war veterans, the easily comprehensible discussion of neurobiologic mechanisms, and the author's recommdedations of essential therapeutic elements make Haunted by Combat a solid contribution."

"Including empirical research and anecdotal prose and poetry about combat veterans, this book discusses post-traumatic stress disorder among war veterans and present debates about diagnoses. Paulson and Krippner also take up other important issues-for example, the difficulty in determining who combatants are (in the case of Iraq) and coping when returning home….Readers will appreciate the volume's general assurance that most veterans get beyond their combat experiences, despite the fact that most receive no formal intervention. Those involved with veterans may wish to explore this existential view of intervention. Recommended. Graduate students through professionals."
