Synopsis:

This book introduces students and professional historians to the main areas of concern in the history of emotions.

It discusses how the emotions intersect with other lines of historical research relating to power, practice, society and morality.

Addressing criticism from within and without the discipline of history, the book offers a rigorous defence of this new approach, demonstrating its potential centrality to historiographical practice, as well as the importance of this kind of historical work for our general understanding of the human brain and the meaning of human experience.
