4 Briggs, Jean

Emotional Expression Utkuhikhalingmiut Eskimo NSGR 68-2
Ottawa
Northern Science Research Group department of Indian Affairs
1968

First Edition
Soft Cover
Very Good



Illustrated

A very hard to find publication, in fact the book itself states "for internal distribution only". 74 pp plus an attached errata sheets of 6 pp. In this detailed anthropological work the author begins by stating her aims and methods along with how the report is organized. This is followed by maps, then moving on to background (geographic setting, population, annual cycle, history, structure of the society, interaction patterns), and then delving into the meat of the subject - Emotion Concepts. Those covered are affection, kindness and gratitude, happiness, hostility and aggression, humor, fear and anxiety, shyness, loneliness and reason. This largest section is followed by a summary and conclusions and finally appendices on kinship and family. A fine clean bright copy with only minor edgewear
