We all experience phobias, crystallizing our fears & aversive behavior around a particular object or situation. Certain typical phobias may be regarded as a normal part of childhood -- fear of the dark, of wild animals, of intruders. This book guides us through the array of explanations about phobia. The behaviorists see it as a conditioned response to a frightening experience; the genetic explanation sees phobia as the evolutionary legacy of real environ. threats -- snakes, spiders, lightning & so on. But the experience of severe phobia contains something intensely irrational. Using common exper., horror stories, Alfred Hitchcock films & the cultural history of racism, Ward illuminates the nightmare world of phobic phenomena in the individual & in socíy.
