Dust jacket is in Fair condition: tears and large chips missing on edges and folds; not price-clipped. From the dust jacket: "No book quite like this one has ever been written before. It introduces a majestic conception of life on this planet which must have a profound effect on our social,economic, and political thinking. Here, the idea of the culture pattern, a force of vast yet hitherto unseen operation, is applied to the study of man, living, developing, struggling toward a condition of happiness in the world which he knows. The culture pattern is the complex of natural and social forces which makes man what he is....For man is in and not above the vast symphony of nature of which he is a part. Let him disregard the implication of this in agricultture, and he will reap flood, soil erosion, and dust storms. If he take up trees without forethought enough to replant, his children will go without wood. The thougtless exploitation of oil reserves must have its inevitable consequence in the disappearance of one of our greatest natural resources....No facet of our modern life is omitted from this revolutionary book. The implications of his theme for politics, economic activity, and social stratification reveal the completeness with which the author has applied himself to a brilliant and unique approach to living."

10 What Is Emotion? History, Measures, and Meanings Kagan, Jerome
New Haven, CT, USA Yale University Press 2007 0300124740 / 9780300124743 First Edition/First Printing Hard Copy New New 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall 
Yale University Press, New Haven, 2007. 1st edition/1st printing. Book is New: light bump on edge and corners of rear board; not a remainder. From the publisher: "In this sophisticated overview of human emotions, a widely respected psychologist and author addresses the ambiguities and embraces the controversies that surround this intriguing subject. An insightful and lucid thinker, Jerome Kagan examines what exactly we do know about emotions, which popular assumptions about emotions are incorrect, and how scientific study must proceed if we are to uncover the answers to persistent and evasive questions about emotions. Integrating the findings of anthropological, psychological, and biological studies in his wide-ranging discussion, Kagan explores the evidence for great variation in the frequency and intensity of emotion among different cultures. He also discusses variations among individuals within the same culture and the influences of gender, class, ethnicity, and temperament on a person’s emotional patina. In his closing chapter, the author proposes that three sources of evidence -- verbal descriptions of feelings, behaviors, and measures of brain states -- provide legitimate but different definitions of emotion. Translating data from one of these sources to another may not be possible, Kagan warns, and those who study emotions must accept -- at least for now -- that their understanding is limited to and by the domain of their information."
