Coverage includes how individuals gain self-awareness, agency, and a sense of identity; self-related motivation and emotion; the role of the self in interpersonal behavior; and self-development across evolutionary time and the lifespan. Connections between self-processes and psychological problems are also addressed.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Take the world's leading authorities on the psychology of the self and ask them to write about what they know best, and you have the Handbook of Self and Identity. Now in its second edition, this remarkable handbook offers the first and last word on this important subject."--Daniel Gilbert, PhD, Department of Psychology, Harvard University

"Building on the strengths of the first edition, the editors have assembled an all-star team of experts to address classic topics and emerging areas of inquiry into the many and varied facets of self and identity. Bringing together individual and social perspectives, this handbook serves as a powerful reminder that self and identity are rooted in biological, social, and cultural contexts, and have far-reaching consequences for how people think, feel, and act as individuals and as members of relationships and groups. Quite simply, this handbook is a 'must read.'"--Mark Snyder, PhD, McKnight Presidential Chair in Psychology, University of Minnesota

"Understanding the nature of self--what it is and what it does--has challenged scholars for many centuries. Scientific progress in understanding the nature of self was stifled by the inherent subjectivity and ambiguity that plagued much of the early research on the topic. Fortunately, the last few decades have witnessed major strides in the scientific understanding of self-relevant processes. In this second edition, Leary and Tangney have assembled a stellar group of authors who have made important contributions to understanding the nature of self, from its biological foundations to its developmental and cultural influences. This book will serve as an invaluable resource for students and scholars alike, and it belongs on the shelf of anyone interested in self and identity."--Todd F. Heatherton, PhD, Lincoln Filene Professor in Human Relations, Dartmouth College

"I was tempted to assign nearly every chapter of this volume in my graduate Self and Identity class. Each chapter is cogent, neatly summarizes past work, and provides insights into future directions. The Handbook has been an outstanding text for this course."--Jeffrey Green, PhD, Department of Psychology, Virginia Commonwealth University
