The Language of the body( Visual )

6 editions published between 1999 and 2015 in English and held by 163 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although humans can make more than 3,000 hand gestures, even the simplest has numerous variations and interpretations. This program catalogs not only hand gestures, both friendly and insulting, but facial expressions, head shakes, and body distance as well - and the misunderstandings that can occur when body language is transported across cultural lines. Suppression of body language is also discussed, along with "nonverbal leakage," in which the body's language can belie a speaker's words

Beyond survival( Visual )

The human animal : a personal view of the human species by Desmond Morris( Visual )

"Human activity is dissected to discover how our instincts and behaviour are rooted in our animal past; from the way we rear our young to our gestures and expressions; from our courtship rituals and physiological changes during sex, how and why we cope with living in overcrowded modern cities, to the roots of our creativity"--Container
The human animal : a personal view of the human species( Visual )

1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In a short space of time man has been transformed from a primeval hunter into a modern city dweller and there has not been time for biological changes to take place. The city is like a human zoo and this program looks at how it is affected by tribal behaviour and how humans have adapted their need for space and territory
