It is a great honor to be asked to introduce this exciting new volume, having been heavily involved in the first comprehensive synthesis in the early 1980s. Gibbons are the most enthralling of primates. On the one hand, they are the most appealing animals, with their upright posture and body shape, facial markings, dramatic arm-swinging locomotion and suspensory postures, and devastating duets; on the other hand, the small apes are the most diverse, hence biologically valuable and informative, of our closest relatives. It is hard for me to believe that it is 40 years to the month since I first set foot on the Malay Peninsula to start my doctoral study of the siamang. I am very proud to have followed in the footsteps of the great pioneer of primate field study, Clarence Ray Carpenter (CR or Ray, who I was fortunate to meet twice, in Pennsylvania and in Zurich), first in Central America (in 1967) and then in Southeast Asia. It is 75 years since he studied howler monkeys on Barro Colorado Island in the Panama Canal Zone. It is 70 years since he studied the white-handed gibbon in Thailand.

It is generally acknowledged that attachment relationships are important for infants and young children, but there is little clarity on what exactly constitutes such a relationship. Does it occur between two individuals (infant--mother or infant--father) or in an extended network? In the West, monotropic attachment appears to function as a secure foundation for infants, but is this true in other cultures? This volume offers perspectives from a range of disciplines on these questions. Contributors from psychology, biology, anthropology, evolution, social policy, neuroscience, information systems, and practice describe the latest research on the cultural and evolutionary foundations on children's attachment relationships as well as the implications for education, counseling, and policy. The contributors discuss such issues as the possible functions of attachment, including trust and biopsychological regulation; the evolutionary foundations, if any, of attachment; ways to model attachment using the tools of information science; the neural foundations of attachment; and the influence of cultural attitudes on attachment. Taking an integrative approach, the book embraces the wide cultural variations in attachment relationships in humans and their diversity across nonhuman primates. It proposes research methods for the culturally sensitive study of attachment networks that will lead to culturally sensitive assessments, practices, and social policies.

This volume provides insight into gibbon diet and community ecology, the mating system and reproduction, and conservation biology, all topics which represent areas of substantial progress in understanding socio-ecological flexibility and conservation needs of the hylobatid family. This work analyzes hylobatid evolution by synthesizing recent and ongoing studies of molecular phylogeny, morphology, and cognition in a framework of gibbon and siamang evolution. With its clearly different perspective, this book is written to be read, referenced, and added to the bookshelves of scientists, librarians, and the interested public.

Ihre Entdeckung war eine der großen wissenschaftlichen Sensationen der letzten Jahre und gab schlagartig vielen scheinbar ausschließlich menschlichen Fähigkeiten eine biologische Basis: Spiegelneurone in unserem Gehirn spielen eine Schlüsselrolle, wenn wir uns in andere Menschen einfühlen, wenn wir ihre Gefühle und Absichten erspüren, wenn wir Mitleid empfinden. Giacomo Rizzolatti hat die Spiegelneurone vor zehn Jahren in der Großhirnrinde von Rhesusaffen entdeckt. Die Neurone haben die erstaunliche Eigenschaft, immer gleich zu reagieren, egal ob der Affe eine Handlung selber ausführt oder ob er diese Handlung bei anderen beobachtet. In diesem Buch schreibt Giacomo Rizzolatti, zusammen mit Corrado Sinigaglia, zum ersten Mal selber über die weitreichenden Konsequenzen seiner Entdeckung, über die vielen Domänen unseres Denkens, Handelns und Empfindens, in denen das Spiegel-Prinzip eine Rolle spielt. "Mein Team und ich stoßen hier, ähnlich wie Einstein, in neue Dimensionen vor. Schließlich finden immer noch einige der größten Geheimnisse in unserem eigenen Kopf statt, nicht wahr?"
