Fear of Others Publication date : April 1, 1998

Being in a cold sweat or having palpitations just at the idea of talking during ameeting or in front of somebody important, trembling before an exam, not daring to callback a waiter to change a dish in a restaurant, avoiding parties, staying distant to avoidbeing rejected... There are many situations in everyday life when we are confronted toothers, when we are afraid of others.In this extremely interesting and clear work packedwith examples, the authors, both psychiatrists, describe the various aspects of anxiety insociety and explain the mental mechanisms of these fears.
