  1. Just Published: Warring with Words

    "The dynamics of communication and persuasion are overwhelmingly carried by what is said, how arguments are framed, and how factual information is 'spun.' In this timely volume the authors, all leading experts in their respective fields, examine this all important topic of human interaction. A must read for all those with an interest in the processes of social influence and in the secrets of effectively 'saying things with words." - Arie W. Kruglanski, Ph.D., University of Maryland

  2. Congratulations to Roger Giner-Sorolla!

    Judging Passions: Moral Emotions in Persons and Groups has been shortlisted for the British Psychological Society Book Award (Academic Monograph category) 2014! Judging Passions asks if we should be concerned that important moral judgments can be swayed by "hot" passions, such as anger, disgust, guilt, shame and sympathy. Drawing on extensive research, including many studies from the author’s own lab, the book shows why emotions work to encourage reasonable moral behavior – and why they sometimes fail.

  3. Handbook of Attachment - Assessment

    Why is a knowledge of Attachment Theory so important to professionals?

    Experts in attachment theory and authors of the newly published Routledge Handbooks of Attachment, Steve Farnfield and Paul Holmes, have answered some questions we posed them on why attachment theory is important to practicing professionals, and how their books can support those in practice.

  7. Self-Identity after Brain Injury

    'This book represents a seismic shift in thinking about brain injury and its consequences.' - Skye McDonald

    An injury to the brain can affect virtually any aspect of functioning and, at the deepest level, can alter sense of self or the essential qualities that define who we are. In recent years, there has been a growing body of research investigating changes to self in the context of brain injury. Developments in the cognitive and social neurosciences, psychotherapy and neurorehabilitation have together provided a rich perspective on self and identity reformation after brain injury.

  8. Women Voicing Resistance

    Feminist scholars have demonstrated how ‘dominant discourses’ and ‘master narratives’ frequently reflect patriarchal influence, thereby distorting and depoliticizing women’s storying of their own lives. In this groundbreaking volume a number of internationally recognized researchers, working across a range of disciplines, provide a detailed examination of women’s attempts to counter-story their lives when prevailing discourses are unhelpful or, indeed, harmful.
