The primary objective of this Handbook is to provide statements about health behaviour research as a basic body of knowledge moving into the 21st century. It is expected that the Handbook will remain in use and current through 2005, at least. The Handbook presents a broad and representative selection of mid-1990s health behaviour findings and concepts in a single work. While texts and books of readings are available in related areas, such as health psychology, medical anthropology, medical sociology, behavioural health, behavioural risk factors, and changing health behaviours, none of these works was intended to address basic research-generated knowledge of health behaviour, and none was intended to transcend individual disciplines. Accordingly, none of these works presents a broad and representative spectrum of basic health behaviour research reflecting multidisciplinary activities. One work with a title identical to this one but for one word, the Handbook of Health Behaviour Change (Shumaker et al., 1990), deals almost exclusively with applications. This Handbook thus presents the reader with the "state of the art" in health behaviour research, something not found elsewhere.

A new section on Community, System, and Provider Interventions to Support Health Behavior Change focuses on the efficacy of interventions implemented within various systems such as schools, workplaces, and health care systems. The fourth edition also provides learning objectives and discussion questions to facilitate use by course instructors in health psychology, behavioral medicine, and public health. This multidisciplinary text has been authored and edited by highly esteemed practitioners, educators, and researchers who are experts in their specific areas of study. The majority of the text continues to be organized around the specific behaviors and chronic illnesses with the most significant public health impacts in terms of morbidity and mortality.

In the last 20-30 years, research on affective determinants of health behavior has proliferated. Affective Determinants of Health Behavior brings together this burgeoning area of research into a single volume and features contributions from leading experts in their respective areas. Editors David M. Williams, Ryan E. Rhodes, and Mark T. Conner and their contributing authors focus on a fascinating range of affective concepts, including (but not limited to) hedonic response, incidental affect, perceived satisfaction, anticipated affect, affective attitudes, and affective associations. In the first part of the book, the role of affective concepts in multiple theories of health behavior is highlighted and expanded, including theories of action control, dual-processing, temporal self-regulation, self-determination, and planned behavior, along with a new theory of hedonic motivation. The second part of the book focuses on the role of affective concepts in specific health behavior domains, including physical activity, eating, smoking, substance use, sex, tanning, blood donation, the performance of health professionals, cancer screenings, and cancer control. Affective Determinants of Health Behavior offers readers an important window into existing research and serves as a showcase for important insights on possible new directions and implications for intervention.
