It is not The Smile of Mona Lisa, but smiling in general as nonverbal behavior and a facial expression that here is the focus of US scholars, presumably of psychology. The anthology seeks to explore smiling from the perspectives of emotions and social communication, and to provide an empirical assessment of its beginnings in infancy, and its development through adulthood in different cultures. Among the 10 topics are smiles, lies, and emotion; differential emotions theory; smiling in infancy; displays and their meaning when children smile; cultural differences and similarities in the function of smiles; and the therapeutic effects of smiling. The text is double spaced. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
