Science of Emotion, The: Research and Tradition in the Psychology of Emotion Paperback – 20 December 1995
Enhance your purchase
A core text for sophomore to graduate-level courses on Emotion Theory, or a supplement for courses in the Psychology of Emotions, Principles of Social Psychology, Advanced Social Psychology, the History of Psychology.
This text provides a relatively brief description of classic and contemporary theory and research on emotions within each of the four major theoretical traditions that have shaped—and continue to shape —how psychologists think about the field. Written in an informal style, it explains how each perspective defines, constructs theories about, and conducts research on emotion — and presents four often very different pictures of what emotions are thought to be. An abundance of examples drawn from real life, literature, and popular culture, and “thought experiments” help students relate topics to the emotions they experience in their own lives.

HOWEVER--- It does give a good overview of the study of Emotion covering all the main 4 views, giving you the history and the current day view i.e. Darwin, James-Lange, Cognitive and Social Constructivist.
I just found it dull but that's my personal preference. I found an 8 page article by Cornelius alot more to the point and a better starting point to help get into the book or start own research from.
Go here>> [...] (you're welcome) . If you need to know about Emotion research this is a good book and agree with other review- bit in the back heavily borrowed from LeDoux is great stuff.
