About this book

The blush is a ubiquitous, but little understood, phenomenon. It involves an involuntary change in the face that can express feelings, reveal character and cause intense anxiety. Crozier provides a scholarly, yet accessible, synthesis of new research, locating blushing within the context of the 'social emotions' of embarrassment, shame and shyness.

W. RAY CROZIER is Professor of Psychology in the School of Social Sciences at Cardiff University, UK, and is a Fellow of the British Psychological Society. The author of Understanding Shyness: Psychological Perspectives, and joint editor (with L.E. Alden) of The Essential Handbook of Social Anxiety for Clinicians and of the International Handbook of Social Anxiety, he has published widely on shyness, blushing and social anxiety, and on the psychology of art.

Reviews

"A leading researcher on this particular subject, Crozier has written an excellent overview of the research findings on shyness, emotions and blushing . . . this is the first study of this common phenomenon. As such it is a vital resource." - Choice
