This book reviews the theoretical and empirical work in the sociology of emotions, with appendices on relevant psychological theories as they intersect with sociological theories. After being grouped into several basic approaches: cultural, dramaturgical, interaction ritual, symbolic interactionist, exchange, stuctural, and biological, the theories that have been developed within these diverse traditions are described. Summaries of Illustrative empirical work using the theory follow.
