EMOTION IN THE HUMAN FACE

Edited by Paul Ekman

MALOR BOOKS, 2013

The original edition of Emotion in the Human Face, published in 1972, was the first volume to evaluate and integrate all the research on facial expression of emotion since Darwin's The Expression of Emotions in Man and Animals was published in 1872. It presented a detailed, critical discussion of research involving the face and emotion, focusing on the complex conceptual and methodological issues involved, and settling many past controversies, such as whether the face provides accurate information about emotion, and whether some facial expressions are universal.

In 1982, Dr. Ekman expanded, reorganized, annotated, and cross-referenced the contents of the first edition, bringing the review of basic research up to date and charting the new developments in the field.

This special Malor Books edition is a reprint of this important work.

Contributors to this work include: Paul Ekman, Phoebe Ellsworth, Wallace V. Friesen, Joseph C. Hager, Harriet Oster, Maureen O’Sullivan, William K. Redican and Silvan S. Tomkins.
