Embarrassment: Poise And Peril In Everyday Life (Paperback)

Unavailable. No reason given.


This work seeks to show how, in the context of embarrassment being a Uniquely Human Emotion, That It Plays A Pervasive Role In Social motivation and interaction. Looking at its causes and consequences, this volume examines the personal, situational, and interactive determinants of embarrassment, integrating literature from clinical and social psychology, sociology, communications, biology, and other fields. The book has anecdotes, and data from the author's own research. From the evolutionary significance of embarrassment, to coping with chronic blushing, it highlights recent discoveries and offers insights into this aspect of our social behaviour.

Rowland S. Miller, Ph.D., is Professor of Psychology at Sam Houston State University in Huntsville, Texas. In addition to embarrassment, he studies the processes that maintain happy relationships (and so is generally concerned with people coexisting peaceably and well). He is a past recipient of the Newman Award for Excellence in Research from the American Psychological Association and Psi Chi. This is his second book.
