Facing Fear: Cancer and Politics, Courage and Hope was written by the late Judith Strasser. This book was the author's attempt to investigate and understand the nature of both fear and courage, how we respond to fearful events, and how we can overcome fears with courage. While fighting cancer herself, Strasser was interested in the culture of fear we live in, whether fighting disease, dealing with violence in society, or responding to political strategies designed to raise fears. Facing Fear provides positive and practical insights for overcoming fears with courage and hope. Distributed by University of Wisconsin Press for Borderland Books; Non-Fiction; Paper.
