“What a great book! Self-conscious emotions, such as shame, guilt, and pride, play a pivotal role in social and self-regulation. The contributors to this book add to our understanding of these emotions at every level—from their neural basis, cognitive underpinnings, and development, to their societal functions and cross-cultural differences. This book is a 'must read' for researchers and students interested in personality, identity, emotion, moral development, relationships, and culture.”

—Carol S. Dweck, PhD, Lewis and Virginia Eaton Professor of Psychology, Stanford University

“Self-conscious emotions are at the center of all inquiries into human beings as moral animals. This fascinating volume assembles diverse perspectives on the topic, offering a number of new insights and penetrating analyses. It is the single most important resource for all scholars hoping to get a glimpse at this emerging area of research.”

—Shinobu Kitayama, PhD, Department of Psychology, University of Michigan
