    Emotions are at the core of the educational enterprise but their role is mostly left unexamined. This book explores the role of emotions across students, teachers and school leaders. It showcases current theoretical and empirical research on emotions in educational settings conducted in the Asian context. The book consists of three parts, namely, emotions in learning, emotions in teaching and emotions in leadership. These chapters cover different levels from students (e.g., school, university), to teachers (e.g., pre-service, in-service) and to school leaders (e.g., middle-level teachers, principals). Samples are recruited from a wide range of Asian contexts (e.g., Hong Kong SAR, Macau SAR, Mainland China, Singapore and the Philippines). Collectively, the authors use a variety of methods ranging from quantitative to qualitative approaches and demonstrate innovative theoretical work that pushes the boundaries of emotions research forward.
