Description: 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? Primate Encounters represents a pioneering attempt to answer these questions by bringing together two groups of scholars who often ask them: scientists and those who study them. The result is a fascinating and provocative collective reflection on primatology and on science in general, and on the relations of both to broader cultural, historical, and social issues.

Beginning with a history of ideas about primate society, the book continues with personal reflections from senior primatologists who have lived that history. Other chapters reveal the diversity of "primatologies" that exist outside North America, compare the history of primatology to that of closely related disciplines such as archaeology and animal behavior, and examine the roles that gender, media, society, and technology have played in the development of the field.

With contributions by a number of well known scholars in both primatology and science studies, including Donna Haraway, Alison Jolly, Bruno Latour, and Robert W. Sussman, Primate Encounters demonstrates the exciting possibilities that arise when scholars from both sides of the "Science Wars" trade ideas rather than insults. The book also includes a selection of informal e-mail exchanges that allows readers to experience firsthand some of the lively discussions generated by such a diverse group of contributors.
