He is Guts, the Black Swordsman, a warrior of legendary prowess — relent, fear, merci. As cold and brutal as the iron of the massive sword he wields. Bent on revenge against the unholy forces that have branded him for sacrifice, but especially on Griffith, one of the demon lords of the Godhand. But Griffith was once a man, the leader of the Hawks, a renowned cadre of elite fighters with a young Guts as its fiercest champion. Though forged in a crucible of cruelty and violence, nothing could prepare Guts for a confrontation with Nosferatu Zodd, a superhuman beast who slaughters Guts’ comrades as easily as a scythe cuts wheat. Even Guts and Griffith are no match for the abomination’s power...but something Griffith wears around his neck may well be!

The perspective that a primatologist brings to an understanding of behavior is presented within an introductory framework. This well-known work establishes a comparative attitude, provides anecdotal examples of a primatologist at work, and stresses the importance of good research design and quantitative techniques. Anecdotal examples of primatologists at work are chosen to illustrate a field study (spider and howler monkeys) and experiences with a laboratory colony (snow monkeys in Texas). These discussions are designed to sensitize readers to the adventure, complexity, and some of the mechanics of actually doing primatology. The entire primate order is examined, and reader accessibility is enhanced by abundant photographs, illustrations, and an in-depth glossary.
