The chapters of this book review current research on anger across academic disciplines, including affective neuroscience, business administration, epidemiology, health science, linguistics, political science, psychology, psychophysiology, and sociology. The opening chapters address biological bases of anger; subsequent contributions consider its constituent and concomitant psychological processes. The last chapters address anger in social context. Cross-citations in each chapter highlight similarities and differences in viewpoint among investigators in different disciplines.
