Why does social anxiety occur, and why are some people more prone to it than others? Drawing on work on personality and social psychology, clinical and counselling psychology, communication and sociology, this book provides an overview of basic and applied research in the feelings of anxiety, shyness and embarrassment that are often the consequences of quite ordinary social encounters.; The authors examine the features of situations that elicit social anxiety, personality variables that Predispose People To Be Socially Anxious, The Cognitive And Emotional experience of social anxiety, its evolutionary and physiological underpinnings, and strategies for prevention and treatment. The book includes scales for measuring different manifestations of anxiety, as well as boxed material providing coverage of topics ranging from social anxiety among famous personalities to the implications of social anxiety for student achievement.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"The self-presentational analysis of social anxiety, which is the primary focus of this book, has enormous appeal and power, both in terms of its ability to integrate a variety of theoretical perspectives and in its explanatory breadth....This book provides a comprehensive and well-organized overview of theory and research on social anxiety." --"Contemporary Psychology"
"The book is well written and engaging without sacrificing scholarship. References are current and extensive. The text contains boxed discussions that add interest and ancillary material to supplement the main discussion. A valuable addition to a psychology collection, which will serve a variety of audiences, undergraduate through professional." --"Choice"

"Dr. Leary is an established expert and acknowledged master of the field, and Dr. Kowalski is an up-and-coming young star. Their work has extraordinary range and offers countless useful insights. Researchers, practitioners, and the curious public will all find smooth prose and great wisdom in this book. It is an integrative, important, state-of-the-art analysis of a common component of our shared human drama, our fears of what others may be thinking of us." --Rowland S. Miller, PhD, Sam Houston State University

"Leary and Kowalski provide an entertaining yet highly informative theoretical discussion of the causes, concomitants, and consequences of social anxiety. Their review of the vast literature on social and related anxieties is both thorough and scholarly. Social Anxiety is extraordinarily comprehensive and a delight to read. I recommend it highly to my social and clinical psychology colleagues." --James A. Shepperd, PhD, University of Florida

"This is a fascinating and authoritative work on social anxiety. Leary and Kowalski do a thorough and thoughtful job of covering the research literature on this important topic. It is a valuable resource for readers and therapists, as well as anyone who is curious about the basic human project of getting along with others. It is pleasant and easy to read, yet sophisticated enough for the expert. It covers the latest theories and research findings." --Roy F. Baumeister, PhD, E. B. Smith Professor of Psychology, author of Losing Control and Meanings of Life
