What regularities lie behind the development and organization of behaviour in animals and humans? One theme emerging from this book is that ideas have to flow in both directions between the different levels of analysis - between the neural and behavioural levels and between the individual and the social group. Another theme is that it is not enough to identify the many factors operating in the development and integration of behaviour. The processes must also be studied directly. Bringing together work at different levels and studying behavioural dynamics require more knowledge and expertise than any one person can usually command. Links have to be made between different disciplines and specialists have to learn to work with others who speak with what at first seem to be mutually incomprehensible scientific languages. The book illustrates how this may be achieved. The themes of this book are strongly related to the approach of Robert Hinde, in whose honour the chapters were written.

Industry Reviews

"As a festschrift it is unusual, partly because the person being honored actually contributes to the volume himself and partly because the book is so forward looking and contains up-to-date and useful reviews on a variety of subjects...a well-edited and well-chosen collection of essays. Many are extremely useful and topical reviews in their own right." Nature "...a must for any serious student of behavior, not only because of the consistent quality of the essays, but also for Hinde's reaction to them." Choice "...useful for individuals interested in the historical paths leading to the modern study of behavior or to readers who need a succinct review of the current hot topics in the development and integration of behavior." Randy J. Nelson and A. Courtney DeVries, Journal of Nervous and Mental Disease
