This integrative handbook provides a state-of-the-art overview of current topics and research in the fields of personality and self-regulation.  Offering 21 original contributions by internationally respected scholars, the volume brings together key models and findings on the development and exercise of self-regulation from the developmental, personality, and social psychological perspectives. Despite the strong tradition of research on self-regulation within these perspectives, there has been very little communication between them.  The Handbook of Personality and Self-Regulation bridges this conspicuous gap in the literature by offering a comprehensive and rich account of the current state of research on personality and self-regulation.
