Editorial Reviews

Review

"This book served as the core reference for a graduate seminar I taught on emotion theory and research. All of the students found the assigned readings to be highly readable and comprehensive. I can't think of a better resource on the current status of emotion research for both graduate students and advanced undergraduates."--Alfred W. Kaszniak, PhD, Department of Psychology, University of Arizona

"An excellent text for graduate-level courses on emotion and motivation....In addition, graduate students and faculty alike can use the Handbook as a springboard for developing their research ideas on various emotion-relevant topics."--Julie Hakim-Larson, PhD, Department of Psychology, University of Windsor, Canada

"This comprehensive, scholarly Handbook will further propel interest in the role of emotion. The first edition was named a Choice magazine Outstanding Academic Book of 1995. It is likely that the present second edition will garner similar accolades. It has my vote! Highly recommended for researchers and clinicians." --Donald Meichenbaum, PhD, Distinguished Professor Emeritus, Department of Psychology, University of Waterloo

"Emotion is a complex area, and one to which readers bring widely varying interests, biases, and levels of sophistication. This volume does very well in covering the basic and applied topics that are relevant to a broad audience. Presented by a distinguished group of experts who have much of import to say, the second edition of the Handbook is valuable as both a professional resource and a graduate-level text." --Richard S. Lazarus, PhD, Professor Emeritus of Psychology, University of California, Berkeley

"This is a collection of extraordinarily cogent and well-written essays and authoritative reviews of the literature. Its coverage is very broad, reflecting the pervasive role of emotion in neuroscience, the social sciences, and the humanities. It is truly a handbook--in the classic sense of a standard reference source--and it is the only book in the field that is worthy of the designation." --Joseph J. Campos, PhD, Department of Psychology, University of California, Berkeley

More About the Author

Michael Lewis, Ph.D. is University Distinguished Professor of Pediatrics and Psychiatry, and Director of the Institute for the Study of Child Development at Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School. He also is Professor of Psychology, Education, and Biomedical Engineering at Rutgers University, serves on the Rutgers University Cognitive Science Center, and is founding Director of the Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School Autism Center. His research has focused on normal and deviant emotional and intellectual development. His early work focused on the normal course of children's development. This enabled him to articulate the sequence of developmental capacities of the child in regard to its intellectual growth and relate this to changes in the organization of its central nervous system functioning. His discoveries of techniques to measure CNS functioning, through the use of the habituation-dishabituation paradigm, are widely used throughout the country for measuring and predicting dysfunctional growth as well as normal cognitive development. Using these measurement instruments, Dr. Lewis has developed computer-based techniques for enhancing intellectual ability in children suffering from a variety of disorders associated with developmental delays. These include children with Autism Spectrum Disorder, Down syndrome, preterm infants, and children with cerebral palsy. Through his pioneering efforts in both theory and measurement, Dr. Lewis has been one of the leaders in the study of emotions and child development.

Format: Hardcover
This volume is a nice collection of emotion topics including facial expression, emotional development and emotion in atypical populations. A bit technical at times, but a good new edition to add to your resources.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
As I was revising my book (Interpersonal Conflict, 9th. ed.) I relied heavily on the developmental approach to emotion in evolutionary history. This is a scholarly, complete book written by experts in the field of psychological development. I recommend it for the history of emotional theory. It's a reference, not a "quick read."

Format: Hardcover
The chapters in this book are written by some of the most influential emotion researchers of the last decennia. Different angles are presented throughout the sections. As such it is a good addition to psychology researchers who want to have an overview of the field.
