After decades of banishment to popular magazines and advice columns, jealousy and envy have emerged as legitimate topics of scientific inquiry. This volume includes chapters from nearly every major contributor to the psychological literature in this area. From emotional, and cognitive processes that underlie jealousy and envy; to the ways these emotions are experienced and expressed within close relationships; to family, societal, and cultural contexts, the volume offers a definitive statement of current theory and research.

"THE PSYCHOLOGY OF JEALOUSY AND ENVY is must reading for anyone in the close-relationships field, but will be of interest to anyone at all who has ever experienced these emotions or who has been the victim of them in someone else. The book is full of interesting insights....Anyone and everyone will stand to gain from this book not only from an academic standpoint, but from the very practical standpoint of understanding experiences they confront in their everyday close relationships."--Robert J. Sternberg, IBM Professor of Psychology and Education, Yale University "This book offers an extremely distinguished set of authors who are all at the forefront of the growing work on jealousy and envy. Salovey has done a great service in pulling together into this one volume these scholars' work on an emotion that almost everyone has felt. This book lays bare the basis for the legitimate scientific study of jealousy and envy and shows how theoretical and empirical developments have culminated in some very strong and broad advances in our knowledge. The book is an outstanding sign of the advances that can be made in understanding the processes of personal relationships and of persons in relationships."--Steve Duck, Ph.D., Daniel & Amy Starch Research Professor, The University of Iowa THE PSYCHOLOGY OF JEALOUSY AND ENVY is must reading for anyone in the close-relationships field, but will be of interest to anyone at all who has ever experienced these emotions or who has been the victim of them in someone else.
