About the Authors
  • This book is an in-depth examination of self-esteem--people's positive and negative evaluation of themselves as a person. Beginning with self-esteem's conceptualization and measurement, the book carefully examines the role of self-esteem in society and within and across various domains and contexts of the human experience. Inspired by the seminal work on self-esteem carried out by American social psychologist Morris Rosenberg, the book serves as a comprehensive statement on self-esteem theory and research in the late 20th century, with an eye toward the direction it will take in the 21st century.

    • Comprehensive examination of self-esteem
    • Interdisciplinary examination of self-esteem
    • Appropriate for upper-division undergraduate courses, graduate and professional courses, and interested lay readership

    "Many collections are uneven in quality and contribute little to the advancement of their field. This one is an exception. There is much wheat and little chaff, and students of self-esteem will find stimulating insights and research findings in almost every chapter." Contemporary Sociology
