Social Justice and the Experience of Emotion
Routledge – 2011 – 340 pages
This book seeks to integrate the scholarship on justice and affect. The authors focus on empirical social scientific theories pertaining to fairness, mood and emotion. Most of the literature in this book is drawn from social and organizational psychology. Other areas included are management, personality and evolutionary psychology. The book includes coverage of relevant philosophical positions from Aristotle and Rawls.
The goal of this book is to familiarize the reader with the rich tradition of conceptual models explaining the association between justice and emotion. It will be of interest to graduate students, researchers and practitioners in industrial organizational psychology, social psychology, management and business ethics.
"In my opinion, the authors have done an excellent job of providing the reader an historical account of the origins of justice theory. I also think the authors have certainly been thorough in their description of the organizations justice literature." - Steve M. Jex, Psychology Dept, Bowling Green State University, USA
"Justice is a rapidly evolving field that generates a great deal of both empirical and theoretical papers. This book does a nice job of bringing people up to speed on what’s out there without relying on a single perspective. Notably , the volume of publishing in this area also means that it is particularly popular, leading to a greater likelihood that a book such as this one will be read by many." - Daniel Beal, Psychology Dept, Rice University, Texas, USA
"I look forward to owning it and will keep it on my desk as a constant reference. This would be an ideal book for a graduate course (in fact, I will likely design a doctoral seminar around it). It will also be critical for graduate students preparing for their qualifying/specialization exams. And of course, it will be a gold standard resource for individuals conducting research in justice and emotion." - Deborah Rupp, Psychology, School of Labor and Employment Relations, University of Illinois, USA
"As experts in both domains, the authors are uniquely qualified to craft this comprehensive integration of justice and affect. This volume instantly becomes a must read for scholars interested in justice, injustice, and the feelings that swirl around them." - Jason A. Colquitt, McClatchy Professor of Management, University of Florida, USA
