Overview

Highly acclaimed as a groundbreaking work, Contemporary Psychology called Handbook of Motivation and Cognition, Volume 1, "an extremely valuable contribution to the field....Unique as a handbook...rather than summarizing an existing body of knowledge, it attempts to define and shape an emerging field."

Volume 2 continues to emphasize theory and research on the motivation-cognition interface, widening the range of approaches to include clinical, developmental, political, and cognitive as well as the social and personality perspectives prominent in the first volume.
