Concluding chapters present cutting-edge work on a range of specific emotions. Illustrations include 10 color plates.

Reviews:

"Offering the most comprehensive coverage imaginable, this handbook continues to occupy a unique position in the emotion field. Experts will find it invaluable for keeping current, and novices will find it an appealing and accessible introduction."--Susan T. Fiske, PhD, Eugene Higgins Professor of Psychology and Professor of Public Affairs, Princeton University

“The fourth edition of Handbook of Emotions once again assembles a brilliant set of chapters from the world’s foremost experts on every aspect of emotion. It is easy to see why this accessible and authoritative compendium has become, and still remains, the bible of the field. An essential resource for researchers and students alike.”--Daniel Gilbert, PhD, Edgar Pierce Professor of Psychology, Harvard University

"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.”

— Choice Reviews, March 2017

"This book appears to be the gold standard in the field based on the distinguished editors and authors and the fact that it continues to be revised as new theories and research occur. All in all, this is a tremendous contribution to psychology and our understanding of human nature. ****!" (on the third edition)

— Doody's Review Service, September 2008

"Simply put, it is the best single-volume compendium of the state of the art in emotion research." (on the first edition)

— Cognition and Emotion, January 2005
