This comprehensive handbook provides a broad, balanced examination of what is currently known about emotion in human behavior. Leading experts first describe basic concepts and research models and explore the biology and neurophysiology of emotion. The following three sections address developmental pathways, issues related to social processes and personality, and the complex interface of affect and cognition. Next, innovative research on emotions and health is presented in a section that represents one of the field's most dynamic and fruitful areas of inquiry. Concluding chapters comprise in-depth reviews of a selection of widely studied emotions: fear, anger, sadness, shame, disgust, love, and happiness, among others.
