The self is a well established research area in a variety of disciplines including clinical psychology, communication, developmental psychology, social psychology and sociology. This book pulls together, in one place, comprehensive and interesting descriptions of some of the most stimulating, newly emerging research programs on the self. Each chapter, by a leading authority in the field, describes a unique research program, based on solid empirical research. Contributing authors include a mix between established names and emerging researchers whose mark on the field will grow in years to come.
