This comprehensive introduction demonstrates the theoretical perspectives and concepts that are applied to primate behavior, and explores the relevance of non-human primates to understanding human behavior. Using a streamlined and student-friendly taxonomic framework, King provides a thorough overview of the primate order. The chapters cover common features and diversity, and touch on ecology, sociality, life history, and cognition. Text boxes are included throughout the discussion featuring additional topics and more sophisticated taxonomy. The book contains a wealth of illustrations, and further resources to support teaching and learning are available via a companion website. Written in an engaging and approachable style, this is an invaluable resource for students of primate behavior as well as human evolution.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"King has produced a much needed, up to date, and highly readable undergraduate text. His lively and engaging book is a terrific introduction to the natural history of primates."

- W. Scott McGraw, Ohio State University

"This book is an excellent introduction for undergraduate students. The key steps of human evolution emerge against a background of adaptations observed in non-human primate societies. The book is comprehensive and up-to-date. It is easy to read thanks to the original and enjoyable writing style of the author. Recommended!"

- Giuseppe Donati, Oxford Brookes University

"Most importantly, the book is written in a cogent manner. Overall, it illustrates how humans understand the characteristics of non-human primates. Unlike other volumes that comprise chapters written by multiple authors, this volume benefits from a single voice and vision. Summing Up: Recommended."

- L. K. Sheeran, Central Washington University in CHOICE
