Featuring forty-seven original essays by seventy leading researchers, Primates in Perspective, Second Edition, offers a comprehensive and contemporary overview of all major areas of primatology. Thoroughly revised and updated throughout, the second edition offers a diversity of theoretical positions on such topics as reproduction, ecology, and social behavior and intelligence. Primates in Perspective, Second Edition, is ideal for introductory primatology courses and can also be used in upper-division behavior and conservation courses. Additionally, it is an essential reference for primate researchers.

"This edition is geared more explicitly toward use as a teaching text, with a brief 'how to use this book' section for students and teachers, a few 'reading questions' at the beginning of each chapter, and a glossary in the back. More importantly, this edition includes completely new chapters on ecological methods, kinship, and juvenility. There are also total rewrites of several chapters, including those on tool use and behavioral data collection methods, and minor tweaks to other chapters, including welcome changes in terminology in the chapter on social systems and updates to the chapters in the second section based on newly published field studies. I found all of these changes to be improvements and think they make it a stronger volume than the first edition." -- The Quarterly Review of Biology
