This edited volume is both comprehensive and timely, bringing together some of the foremost researchers exploring the biological and psychological determinants of shyness and fear. Its purpose is to present state-of-the-art research to a wide range of psychologists, neuroscientists, and clinicians interested in the development and outcome of these emotions in mental health. The book has three parts: the first deals with the development of fear and shyness in childhood; the second with the endocrine and neural bases of fear; and the third with clinical perspectives on the development of these interrelated emotions. In fact, this is the only book that covers the development and outcomes of extreme shyness and fear, including a look at the basic neuroscience of fear as well as the clinical outcomes of social phobia. It is ideal for clinical psychologists, psychiatrists, developmental psychologists, neuroscientists, and neuropsychologists. --- from the publisher

"Fear and shyness are temperamental qualities that have received a great deal of attention over the past several years, particularly within the last decade. In this extremely well written volume, the editors (a developmental psychologist and a behavioral neuroscientist) bring together a varied and expert group of scholars and researchers to discuss the origins, developmental course, and outcomes of extreme fear and shyness. The book is divided into three parts, with each followed by a commentary on the chapters within that section. Part I ... focuses on conceptual, biological, and developmental issues surrounding the phenomena of childhood fear and shyness. . . . Part II ... concerns itself with the endocrine and neural bases of fear. . . . Part III ... is entitled Developmental Outcomes and Clinical Perspectives. . . . This timely book should prove to be an invaluable tool for psychiatrists, clinical and developmental psychologists, and neuroscientists."--Digest of Neurology and Psychiatry

"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."--SciTech Book News
