A new translation by David Horrocks. At first sight Harry Haller seems like a respectable, educated man. In reality he is the Steppenwolf: wild, strange, alienated from society and repulsed by the modern age. But as he is drawn into a series of dreamlike and sometimes savage encounters - accompanied by, among others, Mozart, Goethe and the bewitching Hermione - the misanthropic Haller discovers a higher truth, and the possibility of happiness. This haunting portrayal of a man who feels he is half-human and half-wolf became a counterculture classic for a disaffected generation. Yet it is also a story of redemption, and an intricately-structured modernist masterpiece. This is the first new translation of Steppenwolf for over eighty years, returning to the fresh, authentic language of Hesse´s original.

While people have known for centuries that facial expressions can reveal what people are thinking and feeling, it is only recently that the face has been studies scientifically for what it can tell us about internal states, social behavior, and psychopathology. Today, because sophisticated measuring systems are more widely available, a wealth of new research on facial behavior has contributed enormously to our understanding of human psychology. The chapters in this volume represent the state-of-the-art in the study of facial expression. They address key topics and questions such as the dynamic and morphological differences between voluntary and involuntary expressions, the relationship between what people show on their faces and what they say they feel, whether it is possible to use facial behavior to draw distinctions among psychiatric populations, and the latest research on automating facial measurement. The book also includes updated commentary by the authors on any contributions appearing previously and a concluding integration and critique of all the contributions by Paul Ekman.
