Title: Developments in Primate Gesture Research
Edited By: Simone Pika
Katja Liebal
URL: http://benjamins.com/catalog/gs.6
Series Title: Gesture Studies 6
Description:

The book is a themed, mutually referenced collection of articles from a
very high-powered set of authors based on the workshop on “Current
developments in non-human primate gesture research”, which was held in July
2010 at the European University Viadrina, Frankfurt (Oder), Germany. The
motivation for this book – following on from the motivation for the
workshop series – was to present the state of the art in non-human primate
gesture research with a special emphasis on its history, interdisciplinary
perspectives, developments and future directions. This book provides, for
the first time in a single volume, the most recent work on comparative
gestural signaling by many of the major scholars in the field, such as W.D.
Hopkins, D. Leavens, T. Racine, J. van Hooff, and S. Wilcox (in
alphabetical order).
