Summary 0ver 40 years after the publication of Leon Festinger's (1957) book, A Theory of Cognitive Dissonance, research on the theory is receiving renewed attention, and revisions to the original theory have been proposed. Consequently, the editors felt that an assessment of the current status of the theory would be of value and that there was a need for a book to present and discuss the theoretical controversies and the recent research on important questions about the dissonance process. For this book, we are fortunate to have contributions from the prominent scientists who have made major contributions to research and theory on cognitive dissonance.
