Michele Paludi, Elihu Root Peace Fund Visiting Professor of Women’s Studies, has edited a book set for Praeger titled The Psychology of Love.
Each chapter in the comprehensive four-volume work includes a scholarly overview of empirical research and theories about the psychology of love. In addition, individuals’ own definitions of love are included. Special attention is paid to accepted standards of love across a variety of cultures, the ways individuals express liking and love across the lifecycle, and patterns in dissolutions of friendships and romantic relationships, making note of gender and race differences.
Paludi also authored a chapter for volume four titled “What's love got to do with it?: The Workplace as a prosocial bystander for intervening in intimate partner violence.”
