Landscapes of Emotion is a fascinating look at the cultural construction of emotions, examining how people in different cultures shape ideas and talk about emotion. The primary subjects of the book are the Minangkabau, a matrilineal Moslem culture of three million people in West Sumatra, Indonesia.


"Pathbreaking in both its concerns and methodologies, this book is an invaluable resource for students and scholars of Indonesian culture. It also constitutes an important and exciting contribution to the study of the interplay of language, culture, and emotion." Nancy J. Smith-Hefner, Journal of Asian Studies
