Thoroughly revised and updated throughout, this fifth edition provides a major review of recent research, with over 225 new references, including expansion in the areas of goal motivation and emotion psychology. Other updated topics include new findings and interpretations on how evolution affects our preferences, how personality traits determine motivation, and how self-control depends on a cost/benefit analysis.

Part I on introduction and history defines what motivation and emotion are and how these concepts are studied. Ideas about the motivation and emotion have been around for a couple of thousand years. These ideas include hedonism, the unconscious, the link between motives and incentives, and why people are motivated differently. Part II takes the view that the body and mind resemble a machine that is motivated to maintain its existence. How the body and mind evolved determines what enhances motivation but also what is detrimental to motivation. Part III covers the psychological aspects of motivation. Differences in psychological needs explain why people are pushed in different directions while differences in personality traits accounts for why people are motivated by different incentives. Part IV examines how the environment is a large source of motivation. People are motivated to achieve positive environmental outcomes and avoid negative ones. Part V treats emotions as motives. An emotion pushes a person into action in order to satisfy the aim of the emotion, such as the aim of fear is to motivate a search for safety. Demonstrate the relevance of understanding motivation. Cutting-edge fields- such as evolutionary psychology and behavioral genetics and their relationship to motivation- are explored. Detailed discussions address the cost of satisfying motives and achieving goals. Uses examples from students' everyday lives so that they are able to relate to the material.

Tory Higgins provides a new theory of motivation that argues that people are motivated by the pursuit of value, truth, and control, but the central story to motivation lies in how these elements work together.

With the recent increase in the scope of drug and alcohol problems has come an awareness of the need for solutions. In this context, federal support for research on drug problems increased tremendously during the last 10 to 15 years with the establishment of the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) and the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA). Funding from these and other sources has led to a substantial increase in the quantity and quality ofpublished work related to substance abuse. As data accumulate, it is becoming more apparent that substance abuse problems are extremely complex and are influenced by a variety ofbiological psychological, and environmental variables. Un fortunately it has proved difficult to go beyond this conclusion to a de scription of how these multiple factors work tagether to influence the development of, and recovery from, drug and alcohol dependence. The purpose of this book is to try to meet that objective by including, in one volume, Iiterature reviews and theoretical analyses from a wide variety of drug researchers. We chose the authors in an attempt to assure that each of the various Ievels of analysis appropriate to the substance abuse problems would be included. In each case, the author was asked to consider how the variables in is or her particular domain might con tribute to the appearance of individual differences in both alcohol and drug problems.
