Presenting many of the most influential and exiting research programs and theories on the interface of motivation and cognition, this Handbook considers a broad range of approaches, including clinical, developmental, political, and cognitive perspectives alongside chapters on social and personality psychology.

This book will be of interest to researchers, instructors, and students in experimental, personality/social, developmental, cognitive, and clinical psychology.
