Über dieses Buch

The concept of this book arises from a symposium entitled “Human-Macaque Interactions: Traditional and Modern Perspectives on Cooperation and Conflict ” organized at the 23rd Congress of the International Primatological Society, that was held in Kyoto in September 2010. The symposium highlighted the many aspects of human-macaque relations and some of the participants were invited to contribute to this volume. The volume will include about 11 chapters by a variety of international authors and some excerpts from published literature that illustrate cultural notions of macaques. Contributions from invited authors will engage with four main perspectives – traditional views of macaques, cooperative relationships between humans and macaques, current scenarios of human-macaque conflict, and how living with and beside humans has affected macaques. Authors will address these concerns through their research findings and reviews of their work on the Asian, and the lone African, macaques. ​

Stimmen zum Buch

From the reviews:

“This book focuses on macaques, the most widely distributed and behaviorally flexible nonhuman primate species. … a useful, timely collection of essays highlighting the diversity of the genus and its interface with humans. Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through professionals.” (L. Swedell, Choice, Vol. 50 (8), April, 2013)

“The Macaque Connection … explores the many ways in which humans and macaques have connected in the past and the present. … The Macaque Connection focuses on providing a rich historical perspective on a wider range of macaque species. The Macaque Connection therefore has greater relevance for historians and cultural anthropologists. … of interest to primatologists––especially macaque researchers.” (Crystal M. Riley, International Journal of Primatology, Vol. 34, 2013)
