Composed of 11 chapters, the book starts by discussing the historical background of play. It also traces the development of the interest in the study of play from the writings of Aristotle, through educational reformers of the 17th and 18th centuries, to the psychologists of the 19th and early 20th centuries. The book then presents important data on the effects of gonadectomy on social play in group-living rhesus monkeys. It also presents a comparative study about the play behavior of three of the four great ape species. Furthermore, it offers a view of the function of play in primate society. Finally, the book examines play in young humans by citing some significant information on the nature of peer- vs. adult-oriented early social experience.
The book concludes by presenting both the theoretical and methodological aspects on the study of play.
The book touches the very same social issues that we see in our communities every day. The young woman with the image of a princess gradually became a community vagrant. Sharon lived a disgraceful life for many years after her fall from prominence. Her life changed again for the better when she came in contact with a near family kin that she never knew.
How many women that you have known or heard of were called prostitutes, whores, and harlots just because they had many children with different fathers? You never stopped and wondered why your acquaintances situation was like that. Why are we so quick to condemn our friends and neighbors when situation exceeds our ability to comprehend?
I can very well relate to the scenario that speaks to the debasement of women in our society, in the past and the present, and most of all the women in my country. The stereotyped, marginalized, and ostracized actions of the critiques have torn the hearts of women from their chest leaving them with very low self-esteem. Many are standing on the stone quarry of condemnation, ready to cast stones that would cut, bruise, maim, and even kill those women who have lost the will to go on.
