This volume is now over 20 years old, but it has remained a valuable resource for me. One of my areas of interest is how an understanding of primate behavior and society might inform us somewhat about human nature and human politics. This volume features 40 separate chapters, each authored by an expert. The editors of this volume, Barbara Smuts, Dorothy Cheney, Robert Seyfarth, Richard Wrangham, and Thomas Struhsaker, are all well reputed primatologists.

The work is divided into several sections.
