Each of the adult anxiety disorders (panic disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, social anxiety disorder, specific phobias, obsessive-compulsive disorder and posttraumatic stress disorder) is presented in a separate chapter of this volume. As the rich description of each disorder is a prerequisite for their recognition, understanding and diagnosis, the book focuses on clinical features, psychopathology and the corresponding conceptual issues. There is also an emphasis of etiological factors, pathogenic processes, and pharmacological and psychological treatments of each anxiety disorder, as adequate treatment depends crucially on the clinician's understanding of the origins of these conditions and the processes involved in their occurrence. The volume is guided by a practical need to present the anxiety disorders as they occur and as they are treated in the "real world." As such, this work is intended to be a state-of-the-art reference for clinical practice, aiming to balance and integrate what is currently known about anxiety disorders and their treatment.

Review quote

... a remarkably accessible book that conveys a great deal of clinically useful information ... He uses many tables to underscore key facts and concepts, and he generally omits the kind of esoterica that only specialists find compelling. This gives the reader the gratifying sense that the book was written to edify rather than to dazzle. Its didactic authority is reinforced by the clear impression one gets that the author has the clinical experience to back up his assertions ... Anxiety disorders are highly prevalent in the general population as well as in general medical practice ... Accessible as it is, this book deserves wide readership among those who are going to take care of patients with anxiety disorders, and experienced clinicians will find it to be an engaging review.
