Description: This is a comprehensive book in which various aspects of cognition and emotion are covered. Written and edited by internationally respected researchers, this is a significantly valuable contribution to this field.
Purpose: According to the editors, the purpose is to gather together, for the first time in one book, contributions from the leading researchers in the field across the range of theoretical perspectives and methodologies. In addition, they attempt to bridge the gap between work on normal emotional experiences and research on emotional disorders. The editors and contributors have succeeded in their goal.
Audience: Although not stated, the intended audience is academic psychologists, clinical psychologists, neuroscientists, academic psychiatrists, and graduate students in doctoral psychology programs.
Features: The book is divided into five parts and 38 chapters, including author and subject indexes. Topics include general aspects of emotion and cognition with excellent chapters written by Paul Ekman, Richard Davidson, Jeffrey Gray, and Michael Lewis. The cognitive processes section includes chapters on such topics as attention and emotion, mood and memory, and facial expressions. Topics of anger, disgust, panic, and phobias are covered in the section on emotions. The sections on theories of cognition and emotion applied issues are quite informative.
Assessment: This valuable book on the current scientific understanding of emotion and cognition is a significant contribution to the field.
