Ekman has devoted a long research career to the issues of whether or not there are certain universal facial expressions of happiness, fear, surprise, anger, disgust and sadness. Darwin had suggested this while Klineberg, LaBarre and others challenged this view. This work has become a classic in drawing the idea that facial expressions of emotion are expressed differently in cultures but in essence these facial expressions come across the cultural spectrum. His work shows that they are grounded in a physiological matrix that are refined within the culture. Bound in red cloth, spine lettering black, near fine in edge worn and chipped pictorial dust jacket.
