Editorial Reviews

Examines conflict as a normal and recurrent feature of primate social life, emphasizing that the study of aggression and social conflict is important to understanding the basic processes that contribute to social order. The contributors--scientists with field and laboratory experience in anthropology, behavioral endocrinology, ethology, and psychology--go well beyond the usual view, which tends to equate social conflict with fights over food, mates, or social supremacy, and analyze the diverse manifestations and significance of conflict in a variety of case studies.
