Appeared in Choice on 2005-02-01:
People do not simply feel their emotions, they try to control them. They engage in a host of cognitive and behavioral self-regulatory strategies to accentuate the positive, eliminate the negative, and otherwise act and feel in accordance with expectations set by themselves and others. Such processes of emotion regulation necessarily involve biological, cognitive, interpersonal, and cultural mechanisms, all of which are addressed by experts who contribute essays to this volume. Fourteen chapters survey this expanse, covering everything from neural control of the autonomic nervous system to the influence of culture in reinforcing certain emotional experiences. Additional chapters examine implications of emotion regulation for child development and psychopathology. Each chapter draws on both theoretical and empirical research to yield a volume that represents the best scholarly work on this topic. Further, Philippot and Feldman juxtapose chapters that take different conceptual approaches, an arrangement that is illuminating and potentially generative, even when explicit connections between topics and ideas are not made. An introductory or concluding chapter that laid out commonalities and divergences among the approaches would have helped the novice reader, but overall this volume is an excellent resource. ^BSumming Up: Highly recommended.

Back Cover Copy
The main goal of this volume is to present, in an integrated framework, the newest, most contemporary perspectives on emotion regulation. The book includes empirically-grounded work and theories that are central to our understanding of the processes that constitute emotion regulation and their consequences. This volume has several secondary aims, as well. One is to highlight several newer subareas in the domain of emotion regulation that hold much promise, such as the relationship between psychopathology and emotion regulation. The book also presents data and theory that have applied value that may be useful for people working in such fields as communication, psychotherapy, and counseling. Finally, the volume gathers contributions across a variety of subfields and includes authors working not just in North America but in other areas of the world. To help achieve these goals, the volume has been organized to begin with the presentation of the most molecular aspects of emotion regulation and to end with the most molar ones. It comprises four parts, each integrating different lines of research from related domains. Part I is devoted to basic processes in emotion regulation, such as neurological, physiological or cognitive processes; part II examines the interplays between emotion regulation and individual regulation; part III presents work on individual differences and developmental processes in emotion regulation; and part IV examines the social functions and constraints of emotion regulation.
Unpaid Annotation
In recent years, there has been a resurgence of interest in emotion, particularly in studying how emotion affects cognition and puts a spin on how we understand the world. This book brings together the most contemporary perspectives in emotion regulation and draws contributors from an international perspective.
