We only have to look around us to see anxieties: in the family home, the workplace, on social media, and especially in the news. It's true that everyone feels anxious at some time in their lives, but we're told we're all feeling more anxious than we've ever done before - and for longer than we've ever done before. It's even claimed that anxiety is a modern epidemic significant enough to challenge the dominance of depression as the most common mental health problem.It's claimed that much of this increase has been attributed to changes in modern lifestyles that have led to more stress and pressure being placed on people, from childhood, to adolescence, to adulthood.

But that's a big claim. Going back over the generations, how anxious were people in 1967 or 1817? Are people just anxious all the time - regardless of what they do or when they lived? Is anxiety just an inevitable consequence of simply being alive? Professor Davey addresses three important questions about the role of anxiety in our modern day world: first, what is anxiety good for; second, do we really experience more anxiety today than we've ever done before; and third, where does anxiety come from - it is of the utmost importance to answer these questions as in order to truly conquer anxiety we need to understand how it got into our soul.
