Publisher: Malden, MA : Blackwell Pub., 2010.

Summary:
The essays brought together in this book understand phobia not as a pathology, but as a versatile moral, political, and aesthetic resource with a history. They demonstrate that enquiry into strong feelings of aversion has enabled writers and film-makers to say and show things they could not otherwise have said or shown.
