Panic is not a single state with only one set of feelings and predictable emotions. The essays and articles in this book span various disciplines—psychology, medicine, literature, and history—tied together by the common thread of panic, including how it is manifested in culture, tradition, and experience, and its differing treatments. Included are original as well as previously published writings by Peter A. Levine, Paul Pitchford, and Kim Newman.
"Panic: Origins, Insight, and Treatment scopes out broad and seldom explored realms. It may be a beginning in mapping out that vital territory, a critical need in these uncertain and turbulent times." —Peter A. Levine, from the Foreword
