Encyclopedia of Human Emotions (2 Vols.)
"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
This unique encyclopedia on human emotions tries to be all things to all readers and succeeds brilliantly. Written for general readers, high school and college students, and scholars seeking state-of-the-art overviews, it is readable, accessible, and authoritative. Its 146 entries cover not only specific emotions and their behavioral expressions (anxiety, envy, shame, zeal) but also theoretical issues that cut across emotions (cross-cultural patterns, psychoanalytic perspective, neurobiology of emotions, poetry) and biographies of individuals who have made significant contributions to the study of emotions (Erik Erikson, Sigmund Freud, Carl Rogers). Well-chosen photographs, drawings, and literary references capture the humanistic element of emotional experience and provide balance to the scientific approach of many entries. Articles are signed by scholars and clinicians and include bibliographies. Levinson (Encyclopedia of World Cultures; Encyclopedia of Marriage and the Family) and his colleagues have put together a truly outstanding work that should be in all collections and consulted first by anyone interested in learning about human emotions.
