Primates Face to Face

The Conservation Implications of Human-nonhuman Primate Interconnections

Primates Face to Face

New information about disease transmission, dietary and economic linkage, and the continuing international focus on conservation and primate research have created a surge of interest in primates, and focus on the diverse interaction of human and nonhuman primates has become an important component in primatological and ethnographic studies. By examining the diverse and fascinating range of relationships between humans and other primates and observing how this plays a critical role in conservation practice and programs, Primates Face to Face disseminates the information gained from the anthropological study of nonhuman primates to the wider academic and non-academic world.


 Reviews:

"A valuable resource..." American Journal of Human Biology

"As prominent primatologist Karen Strier points out in the forward, this book can be seen as addressing a question opposite from the one normally asked: "What can anthropology contribute to primatology?" This book does an excellent and comprehensive job of addressing this question from a variety of often-conflicting perspectives." Choice

'This book is the first to pull together various perspectives on the emerging field of 'ethnoprimatology'.' Ethology
