"Scholarship at its best.... The strength of Darwin's writing still shines through, as well as hes drive to explain the form of each emotional expression.... this new book will be required reading for Darwin scholars of emotion."--Nature
"The appearance of this new edition of Darwin's extraordinary book is a major event in the human sciences."--Steven Pinker
"Darwin's most readable and human book, full of enchanting observations, provocative theories, and remarkable photographs.... This new comprehensive edition of Expression will introduce a new generation of readers to Darwin's masterpiece, undiminished and intensely relevant even 125 years after publication."--Oliver Sacks
"Over many years, while engaged on other work, Darwin was researching the Expression of the Emotions in Man and Animals, his most extraordinary and approachable book, rich in observed detailed and brilliant speculation, beautifully illustrated--one of the first scientific books to use photographs, including some of his own baby pouting and laughing--and now available in a third edition, prepared and annotated by the great American psychologist of the emotions, Paul Ekman... Darwin's book was out of favour for a long time after his death. The climate of opinion has changed now, and Ekman's superb edition is a major published event and has been enthusiastically welcomed."--From a lecture, entitled Science and Human Nature, given at Oxford University by Ian McEwan
