Editorial Reviews

Carlotta J. Willis
A clearly presented and richly referenced synthesis of theories from anthropology, psychology, and neuropsychology supports their approach to movement analysis. This analysis also considers biological, socio-cultural, individual, and situational influences on human action. The text and accompanying videotape include thought-provoking theoretical discussions, challenging exercises in assessing one's own prejudices and preferences of perception, guidelines for designing observation tasks, and an introductory training in movement observation.
