9780819193865: Primate Politics

This book examines the political behavior of primates in the context of a comparison of human and nonhuman social life. Essays by leading scholars from primatology and the social sciences explore the extent to which it is justifiable to speak of politics as a phenomenon among primates and show how human politics can be more deeply understood in the light of hominid evolution and primate behavior. The new paperback edition includes a new preface which reviews developments in the field since the original publication by Southern Illinois University Press in 1991.

Review:

Social scientists have much to learn from Primate Politics. Its contributors treat the social and political life of primates...with a subtlety and sophistication that is all too often missing from accounts of human politics by mainstream social scientists.>>> (Elliott White)

This volume represents a significant and noteworthy effort to advance the linkage between the life sciences and the study of politics....Anyone interested in the linkage between human politics and our primate relatives' behavior ought to read this book.>>> (Steven A. Peterson)
