"This book represents a significant step forward in the theory of management and leadership development. It offers an international perspective in this era of globalization and a new and questioning perspective on the common belief that leadership is something completely different to, and more important than, management. This book will be of great help to the serous theorist and researcher of management and leadership development. It is an invaluable point of reference for a broad range of theory and research in this area, which it summarizes with admirable brevity and clarity." - John G. Burgoyne, Lancaster University Management School and Henley Management College
Covering the entire scope of the psychology of emotion, this collection contains benchmark readings with a combination of classic works and more recent key publications, and will be included as part of the Sage Benchmarks in Psychology series.
Volume 1 includes theoretical papers that set out major theoretical positions in the psychology of emotion, while the remaining readings are predominantly empirical articles that show how psychological knowledge of emotion is acquired through research. In addition to the 74 key papers included, the collection opens with an introductory editorial essay by Antony Manstead in which he sets out the rationale behind the selection of papers, and provides an illuminating discussion of the key issues in emotion theory and research.
Volume 1 covers topics in emotion theory and cognitive approaches to studying emotion
Volume 2 covers social, cultural, and organizational aspects of emotion
Volume 3 covers physiological and neuroscience approaches to emotion
Volume 4 covers developmental, health, and clinical approaches to emotion
This five-volume reference set will make an invaluable addition to any academic library with an interest in and/or existing collections in the psychology of emotion. It should provide an excellent supplement on courses in emotion where students need to engage with the theoretical views and empirical research that have made this field of inquiry so fascinating and a perfect reference work for researchers from any domain of emotional research.
