Music's ability to express and arouse emotions is a mystery that has fascinated both experts and laymen at least since ancient Greece. The predecessor to this book, Motion and Emotion (OUP, 2001) was critically and commercially successful and stimulated much further work in this area. In the years since the publication of that book, empirical research in this area has blossomed, and the successor to Music and Emotion reflects the considerable activity in this area.

The Handbook of Music and Emotion offers an 'up-to-date' account of this vibrant domain. It provides comprehensive coverage of the many approaches that may be said to define the field of music and emotion, in all its breadth and depth. The first section offers multi-disciplinary perspectives on musical emotions from philosophy, musicology, psychology, neurobiology, anthropology, and sociology. The second section features methodologically-oriented chapters on the measurement of emotions via different channels (e.g., self report, psychophysiology, neuroimaging). Sections three and four address how emotion enters into different aspects of musical behavior, both the making of music and its consumption. Section five covers developmental, personality, and social factors. Section six describes the most important applications involving the relationship between music and emotion. In a final commentary, the editors comment on the history of the field, summarize the current state of affairs, as well as propose future directions for the field.

The only book of its kind, the Handbook of Music and Emotion will fascinate music psychologists, musicologists, music educators, philosophers, and others with an interest in music and emotion (e.g. in marketing, health, engineering, film, and the game industry). It will be a valuable resource for established researchers in the field, a developmental aid for early-career researchers and postgraduate research students, and a compendium to assist students at various levels. In addition, as with its predecessor, it will also interest from practicing musicians and lay readers fascinated by music and emotion.

Review:

Review from previous edition: "One of the major merits of the book, which I think deserves high praise, is its multidisciplinarity, showing that the link between music and emotion is broad and can be viewed from many different and equally valid points of view." --Journal of Consciousness Studies, Vol 11, No 2 2004

"This is a comprehensive and enlightening text that will appeal to many. The diversity in contributions and scope of treatment of the topic makes it an essential read for anyone interested in music and emotion." --The Psychologist January 2003

". . . the editors commissioned an excellent selection of papers, which sit well together within one volume. As one would expect from the combined forces of Juslin, Sloboda and Oxford University Press, the standard of editing is excellent, chapters are thoroughly cross-referenced and the two indices (one for authors and one for subjects) are actually useful." --Psychology of Music September 2003
