Jolly developed these ideas further in two books, The Evolution of Primate Behaviour (1972) and Lucy's Legacy: Sex and Intelligence in Human Evolution (1999). She never described herself as a feminist, but simply lived a life that led and supported feminism. Daughter of the artist Alison Mason Kingsbury and the humorist and Cornell scholar Morris Bishop, Jolly was born and raised in Ithaca, New York. She graduated with a BA in zoology from Cornell University, Ithaca, and a PhD in zoology from Yale University. At Yale, she met Richard Jolly, an Englishman also studying for a PhD, and they.

Alison Jolly, primatologist, died on February 6th, aged 7. In some primate societies, she found, it is females who dominate, and not the males. Until then, she had studied lemurs in captivity. He was obviously alpha, from the granite forehead to the cleft chin. His soft, precise sounds were instantly obeyed, as law, by the other males in the troop.

I used the first edition of this volume once upon a time (many years ago) as one of my textbooks in a course on primate behavior that I taught (a political scientist teaching primate behavior?). It was enjoyable to students, served its purpose well in presentation a lot of information to the class in a readable style. The second edition was a very well done update.

One nice touch: the volume begins with an extended quotation on apes from Hildegard of Bingen (about 1150). From there. The organization of the volume is pretty standard, with chapter after chapter considering key issues of primate behavior. Part One is labeled "Ecology." Here, we are introduced to the variety of primate species, to ecological considerations (including reproduction strategies), food and feeding, predation (and disease and death), ranging, and group size and structure, in groups versus out groups, and relations with other species). This part of the book is a building block on which subsequent chapters develop.

Part Two focuses on primate societies. Subjects covered include: genes and society, communication, demography, competition, sex, mothers and infants, and how the young "grow up" within their primate society. All chapters reflected state of the art research at the time of publication (one reason I liked Jolly's work so much).

Finally, primate intelligence. Here, Jolly considers "primate psychology," tool use, cognition, play, "language," and social learning.

By the time one finished reading this volume, one had a pretty good sense of what we knew about primate behavior at the time. And, indeed, the book does not hold up too badly, given that this edition is now over twenty years old.
