"Drs. Rapee and Barlow have contributed immeasurably in the past to both scientific and clinical understanding of anxiety disorders. Once again in this book they have successfully brought together many disciplines and points of view to present a cohesive, illuminating, and important description of chronic anxiety. The book is eminently readable and informative and will appeal both to specialists in the field of anxiety disorder research as well as to clinicians and patients with anxiety disorder who want to understand the most current recommendations for treatment."--Jack M. Gorman, M.D. College of Physicians & Surgeons of Columbia University "Barlow and Rapee have edited an outstanding comprehensive text on the subject of Generalized Anxiety Disorders. This relatively neglected orphan of DSM III Anxiety Disorders is in need of a focused academic research effort, similar to that undertaken over the past decade for panic disorder. [This book] provides the foundation upon which such an effort could be based. The list of contributing authors includes the key clinical researchers in this field. The topics covered provide a comprehensive view of the current state of psychological and biological knowledge..."--Katherine Shear, M.D., Associate Professor of Psychiatry, Cornell University, Director of Anxiety Disorders Clinic, N.Y.
