Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Michael Joel Schrift, DO, MA (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: This interesting book summarizes current scientific data on whether post-traumatic stress disorder, panic disorder and agoraphobia, social phobia, and specific animal/situational phobias constitute a distinct fear-based and stress-induced syndrome. Written and edited by a group of nationally recognized clinician-scientists, this book offers a new conceptualization of these all too frequent and at times disabling disorders and is a welcome contribution to psychiatry.
Purpose: The editors note, "By offering important new ways of thinking about these disorders, the book not only allows researchers to more accurately assess these diagnostic classifications but also can help clinicians more effectively communicate with patients regarding the nature of their illness and its treatment."
Audience: The targeted audience includes researchers and clinicians.
Features: Part 1 describes the four stress-induced and fear circuitry disorders: post-traumatic stress disorder, panic disorder and agoraphobia, social phobia, and specific animal/situational phobias. The course and classification of anxiety disorders is covered in part 2. Part 3, on special topics, contains chapters on diverse topics such anxiety disorders in African Americans, the genetics of anxiety disorders, anxiety-related cognition, triggers, functional and structural brain imaging, the neurochemistry of anxiety and stress, and substance abuse and anxiety. Each chapter concludes with important and timely references to the scientific literature.
Assessment: Research into the pathophysiology of anxiety disorders is evolving rapidly and this book will give readers a glimpse into important new conceptualizations about these common problems. I highly recommend it.
