Overview

“Given its comprehensiveness and attention to both basic and applied issues, this is a volume that anyone wishing to understand the development of jealousy simply must consult. Highly recommended.” CHOICE

Wiley-Blackwell’s Handbook of Jealousy presents an informative and integrated portrait of the emerging areas of research on the nature of jealousy, as well as a forum for discussing the implications of these findings for theories of emotional and socio-cognitive development. Through attention to jealousy’s structure and function across age and cognitive status in humans and non-humans, within a range of social, cultural, and historical contexts, this carefully chosen compilation of 23 interdisciplinary articles captures the processes by which jealousy unfolds, as well as the familial, cultural, cognitive, and biological factors that drive its presentation.

A distinguished group of authors address a variety of relevant topics stimulated by recent advances in empirical and theoretical treatments across a range of disciplines. Original empirical papers based on new discoveries are included, along with intriguing theoretical papers and commentaries that address factors which influence or help explain jealousy’s appearance and meaning. The articles also integrate new findings within extant literatures on a variety of topics, and carve out numerous new questions for stimulating further research. Journeying deep into the recesses of the human mind, the Handbook of Jealousy provides rich and profound insights into a powerful and universal emotion.
