In this second edition of the Handbook of Eating Disorders every chapter has been rewritten. This was necessary to reflect not only the many advances in knowledge and understanding of eating disorders, but also the advances in communication between clinical and academic branches, and between countries. The second edition embraces this more coherent, integrated approach.

The spectrum of what is termed an eating disorder now includes obesity, and new conditions such as binge eating disorder have emerged. In this new edition, many chapters now encompass both the lean and obese ends of the spectrum so that each may benefit from understanding gained in the other. To further encourage this synthesis and consensus, chapter authors have been paired with colleagues in other schools, countries or disciplines.

However, like the previous edition, the Handbook of Eating Disorders, Second Edition provides a clear, coherent, readable and authoritative overview of this rapidly developing field that will be welcomed by all clinicians and researchers in the eating disorders field.
