Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Feeling Politics: Emotion in Political Processing is a timely contribution from a very distinguished group of scholars in the burgeoning field of emotions and politics. The volume reminds us that political reasoning is not simply the outcome of 'cold' calculation concerning one's interests or a simple accumulation of factual information. Rather, the contributors to this volume underscore how emotions can bias citizens' political decision making, harden existing beliefs even in the face of contrary information, heighten attention to political figures and events, worsen information processing and learning, and intensify the impact of political ads. Intellectual synergy is conveyed well by the chapters in this volume, which represent the rich nexus of cross cutting ideas, approaches, and findings characteristic of work on emotions."
-- Leonie Huddy, Stony Brook University
