As part of the SFI series, this book presents the most up-to-date research in the study of human and primate societies, presenting recent advances in software and algorithms for modelling societies. It also addresses case studies that have applied agent-based modelling approaches in archaeology, cultural anthropology, primatology, and sociology. Many things set this book apart from any other on modelling in the social sciences, including the emphasis on small-scale societies and the attempts to maximize realism in the modelling efforts applied to social problems and questions. It is an ideal book for professionals in archaeology or cultural anthropology as well as a valuable tool for those studying primatology or computer science.

Review:

the papers in this book make a strong case for the productiveness of agent-based modelling approaches within a broad complex adaptive systems framework. (Cambridge Archaeological Journal, vol. 11, no. 2)

This collection represents a significant contribution to the agent stimulation research program ... this book contains a wide range of substantive and insight-provoking articles. It should be on the shelf of any scholar interested in the emergence of social stimulation as a distinct approach to the study of human society. In addition to a number of relevant conceptual contributions, it provides an in-depth view of how agent simulation methods can be adapted to the study of empirically rich cases. (David L.Sallach, JASSS)
