argued with skill and sophistication ... takes a balanced approach ... articulates valuable, sometimes provocative, ideas * The Heythrop Journal, vol. 42, no. 4 *
Lelwica ... has undoubtedly made a valuable contribution to thinking about eating disorders from a religio-cultural perspective. * The Heythrop Journal, vol. 42, no. 4 *
A complex, challenging and rewarding read. * Sandra Collins, RRT, Vol.7, Iss.4, 9/00. *
The strength of Lelwica's approach is the way she draws [all these] threads together, identifies common themes and offers a strategy for an integrated, multidisciplinary approach ... a rich resource for a wide range of interested groups, and no only those concerned with eating disorders. * Sandra Collins, RRT, Vol.7, Iss.4, 9/00. *
this is a thorough and creative book. Lelwica engages critically with a number of different disciplines, and raises questions which reflect concerns in the wider field of mental health and scial justice, in America, the UK and Australia. * Sandra Collins, RRT, Vol.7, Iss.4, 9/00. *
I was impressed by Lelwica's disclosure of her own experience of bulminia as a young woman ... To my mind, this goes much farther than simply sharing experience. Given the level of stigma associated with eating problems and mental illness, it is a powerful statement of solidarity and reflects her view of the political dimensions of spirituality. * Sandra Collins, RRT, Vol.7, Iss.4, 9/00. *
