About this book

First published in 1978, this study of sexual combat amongst hanuman langurs, the black-faced, grey monkeys inhabiting much of the Indian subcontinent, was the first book to analyse behaviour of wild primates from the standpoint of both sexes. It is also a poignant and sophisticated exploration of primate behaviour patterns from a feminist point of view.
