Since its initial publication in 1986, Hunger Strike has been at the center of the debate over anorexia. This beautifully repackaged edition includes Susie Orbach’s 1993 introduction, which discusses more recent attitudes toward eating problems and how they have changed over the last several years, and a revised final chapter, in which she proposes an innovative approach to residential treatment that utilizes the meanings of anorexia to the sufferer as a basis for therapy.
