Review

A magnificent and important book. Maestripieri has created an authoritative synopsis of a growing and contentious research field that for too long has been hyper-dispersed among narrowly conceived literatures and academic departments. The authors put the current work on the psychology of human and nonhuman primates in historical perspective and also show us the latest developments and controversies. Primate Psychology should be required reading for academic researchers and science popularizers who have studied the evolution of human personality, emotion, and intelligence.
--Sue Boinski, University of Florida

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 2004-04-01)

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.
