"The Handbook of Emotion, Adult Development, and Aging is the most comprehensive treatment to date of this nascent area of research... a substantial contribution and its many fine chapters will function as guideposts for this blossoming area of scholarly study as it continues to grow."
"This is an exceptionally good collection of papers on emotion. It is an added bonus that they also deal with issues related to human development and aging... The handbooks focus on developmental themes is a special contribution. Although research on emotion has increased in recent years, relatively little has appeared on emotional processes in the middle and later parts of the life span. This book directly addresses these issues and does so in ways that clarify basic emotional processes at all levels. Although aimed at professionals and researchers in the field, many of the chapters will be accessible to upper-division undergraduates and graduate students with backgrounds in psychology, sociology, anthropology, or nursing."
