About this book

The contributors, internationally known experts in primatology and psychology, focus primarily on social processes in areas including aggression, conflict resolution, sexuality, attachment, parenting, social development and affiliation, cognitive development, social cognition, personality, emotions, vocal and nonvocal communication, cognitive neuroscience, and psychopathology. They argue for an integration of human and primate research, on grounds of a shared breadth of context-sensitive behaviour.

Media reviews
In this pathbreaking book, the editor and contributors look at primate behavior from a body of theory that was developed through the study of humans...Twenty-nine leading specialists examine a tremendous range of topics. Bravely conceived and well executed, this edited volume will go a long way toward uniting a field that in the past has been hopelessly fragmented within the academic isolation of many different departments and journals. -- F. S. Szalay Choice 20040401 Primate Psychology is a fascinating update of this field of research, written by 29 specialists. It deals with humans as well as other primates, a rare integration, and is enlightening when looking at social processes such as parenting. The editor, Dario Maestripieri, has included papers that point out gaps in our knowledge: for example, what has and has not been studied in conflict resolution among primates. -- Maggie McDonald New Scientist 20051001 Primate Psychology is a fascinating update of this field of research, written by 29 specialists.
