Books

I enjoy research and writing books. My first book, Stress Disorders among Vietnam Veterans: Theory, Research, and Treatment, was published in 1978 when I was as assistant professor at Purdue University. It was the first to discuss what would be named post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Here is a list of mine, most recent first.
