About this book

Based on the author's second stage of research on emotions of the matrilineal Moslem Minangkabau of West Sumatra, Indonesia, this book is a continuation of Heider's groundbreaking 1991 book, Landscapes of Emotion . This work demonstrates how situating emotion at the center of an investigation is a powerful ethnographic tool.

Reviews

"For more than a quarter century, Heider has led the way in the study of culture and emotion in Indonesia and Southeast Asia. The Cultural Context of Emotion takes this extraordinary achievement further, offering readers the finest work on culture and emotion in Southeast Asia ever written. This brilliant work is a must-read work for Asianists, students of psychological anthropology, and cultural psychology." - Robert Hefner, Director, Institute on Culture, Religion, and World Affairs, Boston University"Smart, subtle, engaging, and deeply informed, The Cultural Context of Emotion is a remarkable contribution both to our understanding of Minangkabau life and culture and to our sense of new strategies for ethnopsychological research. Heider charts a complex and fascinating emotional landscape with clarity and insight - a truly thought-provoking study." - Don Brenneis, Department of Anthropology, University of California - Santa Cruz "Heider s study of a very different culture's understandings of emotion allows us to recognize nuances and meanings that illuminate the fundamental nature of emotions in our own lives." - Paul Ekman, Emeritus Professor of Psychology, University of California - San Francisco and President, Paul Ekman Group, LLC
