Recognized as the definitive reference, this handbook brings together leading experts from multiple psychological subdisciplines to examine one of today's most dynamic areas of research. Coverage encompasses the biological and neuroscientific underpinnings of emotions, as well as developmental, social and personality, cognitive, and clinical perspectives. The volume probes how people understand, experience, express, and perceive affective phenomena and explores connections to behavior and health across the lifespan. Concluding chapters present cutting-edge work on a range of specific emotions. Illustrations include 10 color plates.

New to This Edition A Choice Outstanding Academic Title

“The editors of the fourth edition of this handbook have surpassed their outstanding third edition…to produce a work that provides not only a snapshot of the state-of-the-art aspects of emotion science, but also a credible and revealing vision of the future of the field. Of course, the editors are leaders in their respective areas of study; in addition, they have a rich and comprehensive understanding of the field of emotion science as a whole, especially its expanding borders. In the eight years since the last edition was published, the field has grown enormously; the new edition reflects that growth and more….Noteworthy in this regard is the inclusion of chapters that incorporate some of the new methodologies and approaches that are changing the ways in which individuals think about emotions, as well as the expansion of the final section of the book, ‘Specific Emotions.’ There is no other handbook of this quality and scope. This text is absolutely essential.”
