The Ontogenesis of Social Dominance: A Strategy-Based Evolutionary Perspective.
Hawley, Patricia H.
Developmental Review, v19 n1 p97-132 Mar 1999
Reintroduces the ethological concept of social dominance, and interprets it from a strategy-based perspective. Maintains that, by adopting this approach to social dominance and explicitly incorporating developmental processes and uniquely human capacities, human social-dominance patterns appear to be more similar to primate patterns than commonly believed. Discusses implications for social competence, peer relationships, and the development of self. (Author)
