Intruiguing & Fun
This book is excellent for any general reader or 'primate lover' wanting a deeper knowledge of the politics of our closest ancestors. De Waal writes with a style that leaves no student, graduate, or general reader dissapointed. This book provides a great insight into the peacemaking habits of 4 groups of primates (including us humans) and stresses the need for researchers and the public alike to aknowledge the importance of both aggression AND peacemaking skills which govern, and are governed by, the roles of individuals in primate society. A wonderful call for a re-thinking of previous theories about agression and anger completely dominating society. Fantastic photos and persoanl accounts accompany the text.Was this review helpful?
