From the reviews:
"The editors of this large, lengthy, and (for the most part) lively book ... have done an excellent job of drawing together respected scholar--researchers in different areas of psychology and related disciplines (e.g., sociology, political science) to present contemporary perspectives on this dynamic and influential emotion. ... There are 32 chapters, each of which has an abstract to orient the reader. ... References are helpfully placed at the end of chapters ... . Researchers, teachers, and students of emotion should certainly read this book." (Dana S. Dunn, PsycCRITIQUES, Vol. 55 (39), September, 2010)
"The purpose of the handbook is to `review state-of-the-art research on anger across a number of academic disciplines, including affective neuroscience, business administration, epidemiology, health science, linguistics, political science, psychology, psychophysiology, and sociology.' ... The International Handbook of Anger is a tour de force for the academic community and advanced readers seeking to stay current with research findings and trends across multiple disciplines. ... is a vital contribution and seminal text that I anticipate will educate, inform, and stimulate thinking for years to come." (James K. Luiselli, Journal of Child and Family Studies, Vol. 20, 2011)
