The works of Charles Darwin are a delight to read, even more than 100 years after they were written. But of all his books, the most sensational of its day was The Expression of the Emotions in Man and Animals - because it was the one book in which Darwin explicitly treated human beings as the subjects of study in exactly the same way as other animals. Not many people realize that in so doing he invented the scientific discipline now known as sociobiology. This delightful reprint of Darwin's classic work has been reset (none of your fuzzy photographic copying of old text here) with additional material by Darwin scholar Paul Ekman setting the work in context. An absolute must for anyone interested in science. (Kirkus UK)
The definitive edition of Darwin's classic - a brilliantly entertaining and accessible exploration of human and animal behaviour, reissued to mark the 200th anniversary of Darwin's birth. Why do we bite people we feel affection towards? Why do dogs wag their tails? Or cats purr? Why do we get embarrassed, and why does embarrassment make us blush? These and many other questions about the emotional life of man and animals are answered in this remarkable book. Expression is the only book in which Darwin sketches out his revolutionary ideas about human behaviour in detail: he discusses childhood learning, insanity, painting and sculpture, animal behaviour and the differences in facial expression of the world's peoples.
