This text provides an integrative survey of the burgeoning social-psychological literature on the self. By way of an introduction, the authors establish the intellectual climate that gave rise to contemporary perspectives on the self and integrate early and more recent research on the nature of the self-system. The core of the text surveys the literature on the function of the self as a basis for evaluating social and personal experience and considers the role of the self as a causal influence in social behavior. Throughout, the authors emphasize the innovative methods by which the self is studied. Selfhood: Identity, Esteem, Regulation will appeal to both undergraduate students who have some background in psychology and beginning graduate students looking for an overview of the research and theory on selfhood.
