Personality: Determinants, Dynamics and Potentials, first published in 2000, is a comprehensive survey of research and theory in personality psychology. The book provides balanced coverage of biological, cognitive, affective, social, and interpersonal determinants of personality functioning and individual differences. The authors organize these factors within an overarching theoretical framework that highlights the dynamic transactions between individuals and the sociocultural environment, and the human capacities for self-reflection and self-regulation. The book's broad, integrative approach to the study of personality reveals how advances throughout the psychological sciences illuminate the classic questions of personality psychology. The volume is designed as a textbook for advanced-level courses and as a reference for professionals in psychology and related disciplines. The book meets personality psychology's need for an integrative analysis of the field that reviews recent advances, places them in their historical context, and identifies particularly promising avenues for the discipline's future development.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'The new look in personality! For quite some time we have been hoping for a text that goes beyond the separatism and bias favoring one or other approach to the psychology of personality. With an elegant treatment of both individual process research, Caprara and Cervone have succeeded admirably in joining these two traditions. Their powerful integration points the way to a new future for the psychology of personality. I congratulate the authors on this stunning achievement.' Paul Baltes, Center for Lifespan Psychology
'This is a big book. In every sense ... It is the scope of the book that provides the main 'bigness'. ... There is no other book like it in the field. Psychological Medicine
