Editorial Reviews


"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

More About the Author

David P. Redlawsk is Director, Eagleton Center for Public Interest Polling and Professor of Political Science at Rutgers University in New Brunswick, NJ. Professor Redlawsk received his Ph.D. and M.A. from Rutgers University. He also holds an M.B.A. from Vanderbilt University and a B.A. from Duke University. His research focuses on campaign, elections, the role of information in voter decision making and on emotional responses to campaign information. He has received several grants to support his research from the National Science Foundation, and he served on the Board of the American National Election Studies from 2009-2014.

Prof. Redlawsk's newest book (with Kyle Mattes) is The Positive Case for Negative Campaigning (University of Chicago Press 2014). In this book, he argues that negative campaigning is a positive for democracy, injecting important information into the political environment that voters could and would not otherwise infer if it were suppressed. The book uses multiple methods to address the informational value for voters of attack advertising.

He is also the author (with Caroline Tolbert and Todd Donovan) of Why Iowa?: Sequential Elections, Reform and U.S. Presidential Nominations published by the University of Chicago Press in 2010. Other books include, How Voters Decide: Information Processing in an Election Campaign, (with Richard Lau) published by Cambridge University Press and winner of the 2007 Alexander George Award for best Book in Political Psychology from the International Society of Political Psychology and an edited volume, Feeling Politics: Emotion in Political Information Processing by Palgrave-Macmillan.

Prof. Redlawsk's research has also been published in the American Political Science Review, the Journal of Politics, and the American Journal of Political Science, as well as the journal Political Psychology among others. He has served as co-editor of the journal Political Psychology and as a member of the Governing Council of the International Society of Political Psychology. He was chair of the Political Psychology Organized Section of the American Political Science Association for 2009-2010.

Professor Redlawsk is also interested in civic engagement and service-learning pedagogies. He is editor (with Tom Rice) of Civic Service: Service-Learning with State and Local Government Partners published in 2009 by Jossey-Bass which highlights a number of exemplary service-learning projects across institutions and disciplines, all of which partner with local or state government providing reciprocal value to students and government agencies. Redlawsk teaches courses including Survey Research, Local Politics, Political Campaigning, Voting Behavior, Political Psychology, Decision Making, and Experimental Methods.
