Emotion in the Human Face, originally published in 1972, was the first volume to evaluate and integrate all research on facial expression of emotion since Darwin published The Expression of Emotions in Man and Animals a century earlier. In this edition Dr. Ekman presented a detailed, critical discussion of research involving the face and emotion, focusing on the complex conceptual and methodological issues involved in this study, and settling many outstanding controversies including whether facial expression accurately represents 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 third edition includes a new Preface, three additional chapters, and a new conclusion summarizing Ekman's final views on the field that he has played such a large part in creating.
