Review Review from other book by this author: "... excellent collection ... an extremely important contribution to understanding emotions in general and appraisal theory in particular. The book further advances appraisal theory and makes it more accessible to the research community." --American Journal of Psychology

Review from previous edition ." . the real strength of this book is the comprehensive coverage of a wide range of different approaches to the study of emotion. It is an up to date manual that every researcher interested in emotion should display proudly, albeit on a shelf sufficient to take its 3kg weight" --Psychological Medicine, Vol 34

"Highly accessible and wide-ranging, this book is an important resource for scientists, students and professionals who are eager to obtain a rapid, conclusive overview of central terms and topics in the field of emotion and affect and the mechanisms underlying these aspects dominating wide areas of our lives" --K.A. Jellinger, Vienna, European Journal of Neurology 17
