"Turner's thesis--the primacy of biologically based emotions as the foundation of human social bonding--is intellectually stimulating, and scholars in many fields not only in the social sciences but also in biology and the humanities, will want to read this book. . . . The writing style is clear and engaging." --Larry Arnhart, Northern Illinois University "Turner's book is intelligent, well-written, and scholarly. The argument is strong and plausible. It is an impressive achievement from the standpoint of neuroscience." --Antonio R. Damasio, University of Iowa

The development of his thesis is well organized, and the writing style is clear and engaging, especially important ina book that ranges widely over many disciplines.'
