“This superb handbook delivers all that it promises. Robinson, Watkins, and Harmon-Jones have brought together the top international researchers in the field to share the latest research on neuroscience, experimental cognitive and social/affective psychology, and their clinical applications in a highly accessible way. Readers learn which findings are now considered established and where the most exciting future directions lie. The book will be invaluable both as a reference for clinicians interested in keeping up to date with their field and as a text for graduate students and teachers in cognitive neuroscience and personality, social, and clinical psychology. A 'must have' for all interested in this critically important area.”

—Mark Williams, DPhil, Emeritus Professor of Clinical Psychology, University of Oxford, United Kingdom

“People continually evaluate their environments, themselves, and each other. Discoveries about the resulting emotions have implications that are central to fields as diverse as psychology, biology, economics, and law. Robinson, Watkins, and Harmon-Jones know good science, and their book is a gold mine of current information about the many facets of the cognition-emotion connection. They relate emotion to genes, hormones, attention, memory, goals, decisions, personality, anxiety, psychopathy, and much, much more. Students, researchers, and clinicians—anyone seeking to understand emotion and its impact—will find this book as readable as it is essential.”

—Gerald L. Clore, PhD, Commonwealth Professor of Psychology, University of Virginia
