Societies develop as a result of the interactions of individuals as they compete and cooperate with one another in the evolutionary struggle to survive and reproduce successfully. Gorilla society is arranged according to these different and sometimes conflicting evolutionary goals of the sexes. In seeking to understand why gorilla society exists as it does, Alexander H. Harcourt and Kelly J. Stewart bring together extensive data on wild gorillas, collected over decades by numerous researchers working in diverse habitats across Africa, to illustrate how the social system of gorillas has evolved and endured. Gorilla Society introduces recent theories explaining primate societies, describes gorilla life history, ecology, and social systems, and explores both sexes’ evolutionary strategies of survival and reproduction. With a focus on the future, Harcourt and Stewart conclude with suggestions for future research and conservation. An exemplary work of socioecology from two of the world’s best known gorilla biologists, Gorilla Society will be a landmark study on a par with the work of George Schaller—a synthesis of existing research on these remarkable animals and the societies in which they live.

In this book, field and laboratory researchers show that the Great Apes are capable of thinking at symbolic levels, traditionally considered uniquely human. They show these high-level abilities in both social and ecological domains, including tool use, imitation, pretense, self-awareness, deception, consolation, teaching and proto-culture itself. Here, contributors emphasize the mechanisms involved in building these abilities--especially the lengthy developmental and "enculturation" processes--suggesting changes to current views on how primate and human intelligence have evolved. Researchers and professionals in the fields of primatology, animal behavior, anthropology, linguistics, and cognitive psychology will find much useful information in this book.

Gorillas are one of our closest living relatives, the largest of all living primates, and teeter on the brink of extinction. These fascinating animals are the focus of this in-depth and comprehensive examination of gorilla biology. Gorilla Biology combines recent research in morphology, genetics and behavioural ecology to reveal the complexity and diversity of gorilla populations. The first section focuses on morphological and molecular variation and underscores the importance of understanding diverse biological patterns at all levels in testing evolutionary and adaptive hypotheses and elucidating subspecies and species diversification. Following are discussions of the ecological constraints that influence gorilla social organization and highlight their surprising flexibility. The book ends with discussions of the conservation status of gorillas and the many and increasing threats to their continued survival. Giving insight into the evolutionary biology of these unique primates, this book will be essential reading for primatologists, anthropologists and evolutionary biologists.

Mountain gorillas are playful, curious, and protective of their families. They are also one of the most endangered species in the world. For years, mountain gorillas have faced the threat of death by poachers. Funds raised by “gorilla tourism”—bringing people into the forest to see gorillas—have helped protect them. This tourism is vital, but contact between gorillas and people brought a new threat to the gorillas: human disease. The Mountain Gorilla Veterinary Project is a group of scientists working to save the mountain gorilla population in Rwanda and Uganda. The gorilla doctors study the effects of human exposure, provide emergency care, and act as foster parents to an orphaned gorilla.

Gorilla Justice Caged War Veterans and the Mentally Ill in Solitary Confinement - Toxic and Harsh prison conditions - a Reality check Gorilla Justice is an un-edited raw fictitious parable about a returning Iraqi war veteran who is incarcerated for a crime that may have been forgiven as an accident but was prosecuted under the guise of tough on crime rhetoric by politicians and local prosecutors yearning recognition and power. This book follows the ex-soldiers trials and tribulations as he combats those elements detrimental to his own survival as he learns how to cope with hopelessness and despair that contemplates suicide for him and many others. During his incarceration period he is exposed to the harsh and toxic prison environment as it really exists today in Americas darkened prisons. Cyrus Grossman, a former Army Airborne Ranger, comes home from the war and is basically a good person who has already experienced the impacts of PTSD from the war and other personal tragedies but suffers trauma through his denial for treatment and counseling. Cyrus is a fictional person who experiences reality strewn with real life events and experiences of persons incarcerated under such horrific prison conditions throughout the United States. Each event written resembles or counterfeits happenings in various prisons operating under administrative conditions that are reflections of Abu Ghraib type of DNA but seemingly ignored by the Department of Justice and those local state and federal officials in charge of protecting prisoners civil rights and offering humane treatment. The awareness to this phenomenon is brought to the reader through anecdotal and empirical evidence supported by many experts of solitary confinement and its psychological and physiological effects on the human mind. This book documents what Cyrus sees, hears, smells and touches the lunacy of his cellmates and fellow prisoners inside this man-made hell-hole.
