£3.99

Available in Stock

From the Mona Lisa and Laughing Cavalier to toothpaste advertisements, smiles are culturally pervasive, but their meanings change over time and around the world. Trumble explores these nuances and the implications of the leer, the snarl, the smirk and the lewd grin; he also probes behavioural and psychological aspects of this often impulsive act, asking how smiling fosters interpersonal attachments and at what age infants' smiles become an act of communication.
