About this title


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.
