    Mohammedreza Hojat, Rick Crandall
This impressive collection of articles takes stock of the progress that has been made by behavioural scientists in understanding loneliness -- highlighting what has been learned, identifying gaps in existing knowledge, and setting the research agenda for the next decade.This volume presents a sampling of current cutting-edge research on loneliness. It includes new work linking loneliness to the social construction of emotion, the sociobiological basis of social needs, the nature of social support, and the impact of social relations on physical health. Several chapters explore the impact of childhood attachment experiences on adult loneliness, and others examine special issues of loneliness among older adults. `The study of loneliness is richly documented in this monograph. Brought together are the major empirical and theoretical contributors who are investigating the complex domain of loneliness - from the perspectives of social psychology, personality, development, gerontology, and neurobiochemistry' - Philip Zimbardo `superb: thoughtful essays, interesting and provocative research and commentary, excellent new directions for work. The collected papers represent a refreshing variety of perspectives and ideas' - Carol TavrisThis volume was first published as Volume 2, Number 2 (Part 2) (1987) of the Journal of Social Behavior and Personality.   show more
