Overview

The first edition of Frans de Waal's Chimpanzee Politics was acclaimed not only by primatologists for its scientific achievement but also by a much broader audience of politicians, business leaders, and social psychologists for its remarkable insights into very basic human needs and behaviors. In this revised edition -- featuring a new gallery of color photographs along with a new introduction and epilogue -- de Waal expands and updates his story of the Arnhem colony and its continuing political upheavals. We learn the fate of many memorable chimpanzees and meet the colony's current leaders and their allies. The new edition remains a detailed and thoroughly engrossing account -- of sexual rivalries and coalitions, of actions governed by intelligence rather than instinct -- and it reaffirms the complex bond between humans and their closest living relatives. As we watch the chimpanzees of Arnhem behave in ways we recognize from Machiavelli (and from the nightly news), de Waal reminds us again that the roots of politics are older than humanity.

An account of daily life in a community of chimpanzees that reveals sexual rivalries and complex political strategies.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Offers a detailed account of the alliances, sexual rivalries, and power coalitions of chimpanzees in a large zoo colony in Arnhem, Netherlands. First published in 1982 by Harper & Row, and then by Johns Hopkins Paperbacks in 1989, the account drew the attention of Newt Gingrich, who included it on his reading list for members of Congress. This edition features new color photos and a new introduction and epilogue, updating the story of the colony's political upheavals. Includes many b&w photos. For general readers. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
Jim Collins
Even more enlightening than Machiavelli's "The Prince," this book describes power takeovers and social organizations in a chimpanzee colony...I'll never look at academic or corporate politics the same way. -- Jim Collins
