    In this landmark work, Lazarus offers a comprehensive treatment of thepsychology of emotion, its role in adaptation, and the issues that must beaddressed to understand it. The work provides a complete theory of emotionalprocesses, explaining how different emotions are elicited and expressed, and howthe emotional range of individuals develops over their lifetime. The author'sapproach puts emotion in a central role as a complex, patterned, organicreaction to both daily events and long-term efforts on the part of theindividual to survive, flourish, and achieve. In his view, emotions cannot bedivorced from other functions--whether biological, social, or cognitive--andexpress the intimate, personal meaning of what individuals experience. Ascoping and adapting processes, they are seen as part of the ongoing effort tomonitor changes, stimuli, and stresses arising from the environment. Afterdefining emotion and discussing issues of classification and measurement,Lazarus turns to the topics of motivation, cognition, and causality as keyconcepts in this theory. Next he looks at individual emotions, both negativeand positive, and examines their development in terms of social influences andindividual events. Finally, he considers the long-term consequences of emotionon physical health and well-being, and the treatment and prevention of emotionaldysfunction. The book draws together the relevant research from a wide varietyof sources, and distills the author's pioneering work in the field over the lastforty years. As a comprehensive treatment of the emotions, the book willinterest students, clinicians, and researchers involved in personality, socialand clinical psychology, as well as cognitive and developmental psychology. Itmay also be used as a supplemental textbook in courses on the psychology ofadjustment, emotion, and feeling.
