"Finally, a book that integrates emotion theory and research with the latest findings in the study of social relationships and interpersonal communication!... As well written as it is innovative, this is an absolutely essential study."
"This Handbook of Communication and Emotion is an important step in making the study of emotion interdisciplinary. As psychologists study emotion more than they ever have, as anthropologists examine the emotions of those in unfamiliar societies, as linguists analyze words for emotion, as neuroscientists lay out the neurochemical basis of emotion, and as evolutionary biologists examine phylogenetic heritage, the old ideas about emotion are being challenged... The study of emotion is coming to be seen as essential to many different disciplines and vice versa. This point has recently been discovered by historians, anthropologists, linguists, economists, and ethologists. The Handbook of Communication and Emotion makes this same point for the study of communication."
