The book is a themed, mutually referenced collection of articles from avery high-powered set of authors based on the workshop on "Currentdevelopments in non-human primate gesture research", which was held in July2010 at the European University Viadrina, Frankfurt (Oder), Germany. Themotivation for this book - following on from the motivation for theworkshop series - was to present the state of the art in non-human primategesture research with a special emphasis on its history, interdisciplinaryperspectives, developments and future directions. This book provides, forthe first time in a single volume, the most recent work on comparativegestural 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 (inalphabetical order).
