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.”
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
[An] excellent (and nearly exhaustive) reference…for emotion scholars in the social sciences and humanities.”
