Editorial Reviews

"Summarizes recent theory and research into a broad but not comprehensive sampling of approaches to the relationship between emotions and psychopathology in such fields as psychology, psychiatry, sociology, and philosophy. Addresses general issues and normal and disordered emotions, thendetails work on schizophrenia, depression, anxiety, and personality disorders. People have long believed that emotions lie at the heart of many psychopathological disorders, but the research in the various fields has been independent and uninformed by findings in others."--SciTech Book News
