Pp. xv, 635; some line-drawings. Publisher’s original red cloth, lettered in silver on the spine, color pictorial dust jacket, lg 8vo. How have our conceptions of primate behavior and society changed since primatology came into its own after World War II? What kind of science is primatology and what role have women scientists played in its development? This volume represents a pioneering attempt to answer these questions by bringing together two groups who often ask them: scientists and those that study scientists. The result is a fascinating and provocative collective reflection on primatology and on science in general. The 24 chapters in this volume are based on papers presented at a Wenner-Gren symposium held in Teresopolis, Brazil in 1996. Small signature of former owner on the front endpaper. No signs of use.
