This volume presents cutting-edge work in emotion theory and research that is altering the landscape of the field. Contributors--who represent the first generation of psychologists trained primarily as affect scientists--describe innovative methods, models, and measurements that illuminate and at times challenge traditional paradigms. The volume covers the broad subfields of emotion research. Addressed are such basic areas as the structure and function of emotion; affective neuroscience and cognition; positive emotions, including a chapter on the evolution of positive affect; and social and cultural influences on emotion. Also examined are applied and clinical topics, including emotion self-regulation and intelligence and the role of emotions in coping, health, and psychopathology. Structured in a coherent format to facilitate use in teaching, each chapter defines basic terms, reviews the historical development and evolution of the issue at hand, and discusses current research and directions for future investigation.

"I read this book with considerable pleasure. It offers an admirable overview of the research produced by members of the younger generation of emotion investigators, and contains a rich store of data on the many topics covered. Chapters address cutting-edge theoretical issues that have moved to the fore in the last decade, offering a number of truly innovative and surprising insights."
-Nico Frijda, PhD., Department of Psychology, University of Amsterdam, The Netherlands

"With the rapid growth of the literature on emotions over the past two decades, staying abreast of the many new developments in theory and research has become a formidable if not impossible problem. Mayne and Bonanno take a big step toward solving this problem with this excellent work. Chapters cover a range of topics, from the evolution and neuroscience of emotions to emotional intelligence and dynamic systems theory. I learned much from my reading of this volume."
-Carroll E. Izard, PhD
