`A landmark....[Altmann] not only indicates how ecological and social pressures mould mothering styles but significantly deepens our appreciation of the complexity of baboon social organisation.' Science
`One of the first serious attempts to portray the....relationships among mothers, infants and the social group of which they form such a fundamental part.' John M. Deag, Nature
When this book was first published, it was a landmark in studies of free-ranging primates as well as the first synthetic text on the ecology and behaviour of mothers and infants. It remains as important today as it was 20 years ago, and it is timely to bring it to the attention of a new generation of behavioural ecologists.--P.C./i>--P.C. Lee "Folia Primatologica "
