Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Extreme Fear, Shyness, and Social Phobia assembles a stellar group of researchers to discuss the origins, development, and outcomes of extreme fear and shyness. By selecting the foremost experts from disparate fields, the editors provide a thorough and timely examination of the subject and present state-of-the-art research for psychologists, neuroscientists, and clinicians interested in the development and outcome of these emotions in mental health.

This book is divided into three parts. Part I investigates the development of fear and shyness in childhood; Part II examines the endocrine and neural bases of fear; and Part III provides clinical perspectives. As well, this is one of the only books available to cover the development and outcomes of extreme fear and shyness, explain the basic neuroscience of fear, and document the clinical outcomes of social phobia.

Book News Annotation:

Experts from disparate fields provide a thorough and timely examination of the development and outcomes of fear, shyness, and social phobia. Schmidt (psychology, McMaster U.) and Schulkin (physiology and biophysics, Georgetown U.) offer 13 contributions that discuss conceptual, biological, and developmental considerations in the phenomena of childhood fear and shyness; endocrine and neural bases of fear; and clinical perspectives.

extreme fear and shyness, explain the basic neuroscience of fear, and document the clinical outcomes of social phobia.

Synopsis:

Greatly influenced by Gandhi's satyagraha movement, Karmabhumi is set in the Uttar Pradesh of the 1930s. By the beginning of the 20th century, Islam and Hinduism had coexisted in India for over a thousand years, and barring the occasional outbursts of violence, the two religious communities

had lived together peacefully and shared strong social bonds except marriage. English education, however, drove a wedge between these two communities. It is against this backdrop that Premchand wrote Karmabhumi.
