about

This volume reports recent results of investigations into the role of attributional processes in self-presentation. The volume casts a wide net with work of interest to both clinicians and cognitive theorists. Self-presentation, self-enhancement, defensiveness, and self-handicapping are all important concepts for clinical treatment as well as for attribution theory. The excuses people make for their actions and the morality of blaming and responsibility also fit into this link between attribution and personality. This volume addresses such issues with an up-to-date presentation of current research by the leading investigators of cognitive approaches to the self.
