"Mothers and Others" looks to a line of apes who began to rear their young differently than their Great Ape ancestors. Out of this complicated and contingent form of childrearing, Hrdy argues, came the human capacity for understanding others.

A very interesting book that explores human evolution in context of our social upbringing. It is best when it looks at comparisons of simians and humans, and of different hunter gatherer societies. Overall, fascinating, and well worth the read if you are interested by humans.
