About this book

Scientists have studied monkeys, apes and other nonhuman primates for over 50 years, in the belief that important insights into human behaviour and society could be gained from studies of our evolutionary kin. In this text, leading researchers outline current knowledge and thinking on primate behaviour, and how it has been used in simplified models of human behaviour.
