This book links a number of people under one intellectual setting: namely, the attempt to understand the origins, developmental course, and outcomes of extreme fear and shyness. In particular, this chapter provides a discussion on historical precedent and contemporary relevance. The three major parts of this book, with each part followed by a commentary on the chapters contained within that section, are summarized. New discoveries in developmental psychology and the neurosciences make this an exciting time in the study of extreme fear and shyness. It is hoped that this book will suffice as a resource for researchers and students working in the areas of behavioral neuroscience, developmental and clinical psychology, psychiatry, and pediatric medicine.

Keywords:   fear, shyness, behavioral neuroscience, developmental psychology, clinical psychology, psychiatry, pediatric medicine, neurosciences
