From the Publisher'This important book on the psychology of emotions would be a useful addition to libraries serving both baccalaureate and graduate programs in psychology....insightful.'
This up-to-date summary of research in the field highlights the pivotal role that emotions play in personality formation and social behavior. The authors discuss this research in its historical context, placing current developments within the broader framework of the field's own research history, and that of developmental psychology in general. They treat developmental topics from both the classic age-comparative and normative-descriptive approaches, as well as from an individual differences perspective.
