Summary

Summary

In this illustrated social history of fear, Newman traces many strands of unease, exploring ways it has been projected and dealt with through ritual, religion, literature and social control, and looks at contemporary attempts to deal with fundamental fears through self-help, cults and even the micro-chip.
