This timely volume asks the fundamental questions: What are emotions? What do we really mean by emotional development? Theorists and researchers examine the subject from a variety of perspectives- biological, structuralist, functionalist, systems, and social constructionist-and examine such facets of emotion as emotional appraisal processes, feeling states, action-tendencies, cognitive-emotion interactions, psychological defense, and emotional representations. Each author addresses the editors' call for conceptual definitions of emotion and emotional development, and answers their question concerning the role of emotion in socio-cultural context. The book's ample summary tables and index are sure to be especially useful for researchers, graduate students, and advanced undergraduates in developmental psychology and social psychology.
