Description

This volume deals with the challenge of measuring the emotional atmospheres, climates and cultures that affect humans at different periods of time. Individual articles deal with the emotional climate in different prisons, communities, regions, and nations. Some examine how emotional climates affect our individual and collective behavior, and how climate is affected by terrorist attacks, genocide, and conditions of peace. Others relate emotional climate to the peacefulness of different cultures and the happiness of individuals.
