Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"The editors of this large, lengthy, and (for the most part) lively book . have done an excellent job of drawing together respected scholar­-researchers in different areas of psychology and related disciplines (e.g., sociology, political science) to present contemporary perspectives on this dynamic and influential emotion. . There are 32 chapters, each of which has an abstract to orient the reader. . References are helpfully placed at the end of chapters . . Researchers, teachers, and students of emotion should certainly read this book." (Dana S. Dunn, PsycCRITIQUES, Vol. 55 (39), September, 2010)"The purpose of the handbook is to 'review state-of-the-art research on anger across a number of academic disciplines, including affective neuroscience, business administration, epidemiology, health science, linguistics, political science, psychology, psychophysiology, and sociology.' . The International Handbook of Anger is a tour de force for the academic community and advanced readers seeking to stay current with research findings and trends across multiple disciplines. . is a vital contribution and seminal text that I anticipate will educate, inform, and stimulate thinking for years to come."
