Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0737711647, Hardcover)

The prevalence of bulimia in the United States has grown in the last 30 years. Considered a mental affliction that can be lethal, bulimia is characterized by binge-eating, purging, excessive exercise, and misuse of laxatives and diuretics. Bulimia is both a psychological and a social problem. Causes include conflicted family relationships; traumatic childhood experiences like sexual abuse, alienation, and depression; obsession with thinness; low self-esteem; and even imbalances of chemicals in the brain.

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:23:26 -0400)

Ten essays present an overview of bulimia and discuss various aspects of the disorder, including its prevalence in older women, nonwhite populations, and men; its links to sexual abuse; its possible causes in adolescence; and approaches to treatment.
