by Ivan Ward
Part of the Ideas in Psychoanalysis series
Phobias are common, an intrinsic part of growing up.
But severe adult phobia contains something intensely irrational - the anxiety at the sight of a bird's feather, the thought of crossing a bridge.
Using everyday experience, horror stories, Hitchcock's cinema, and the cultural history of racism, Phobia illuminates the individual and social nightmare world of phobic phenomena.
