This is the first history to be written of the early development of the U.S. Regional Primate Research Center Program. In this groundbreaking work, author Richard Dukelow shows that "the history is built around the characters of the men involved in the development of the program, rather than around each Primate Center." This focus on individuals allows the reader to gain a better understanding of the uniqueness of the program itself. Readers will benefit from the book's brief biographical approaches of the Directors. Directors from various Regional Centers are studied, including The University of Washington, Wisconsin, and California. Sections on "Early Negotiations" and epilogues are included in each biographical sketch. Dukelow's portrayal of scientific history makes The Alpha Males both intimate and rewarding. It will be of particular interest to those people in the fields of psychology and primatology, and those wanting to learn about the history of science or the development of national funded research programs.
