Overview

Brutal Kinship explores the relationship between humankind and its closest relative, the chimpanzee, presenting these extraordinary animals in the wild, in captivity, and in sanctuaries created expressly for their protection. In his revealing photographs and commentary drawn from her firsthand experiences, Michael Nichols and Jane Goodall join forces to present the ways in which chimpanzees are physically, emotionally, and intellectually closer to us than we ever imagined, and how, paradoxically, humans have forced them into a more human yet sadly less humane existence.

"Once we accept or even suspect that humans are not the only animals . . . to know mental as well as physical suffering," writes Goodall, "we become less arrogant, a little less sure that we have the inalienable right to make use of other life forms in any way we please."

In Brutal Kinship, one of the most superb animal photographers working today reveals the fine line between probing inquiry and mistreatment of these creatures-or between love and exploitation of them-in practices like circuses, animal testing, the use of chimps as pets, and even the marriage of a man to a chimp.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
After studying chimpanzees in Tanzania for 30 years, ethologist Goodall has developed a passion for the conservation of chimpanzee habitat as well as for the humane treatment of captive primates. Using photos of chimpanzees in the wild and in captivity in conjunction with commentary summarizing the physical, emotional, and intellectual similarities of humans and their closest genetic relative, Goodall and National Geographic photographer Nichols serve as advocates for a species unable to speak for itself. The book is filled with over 100 remarkable color photographs in a format similar to Nichols's The Great Apes: Between Two Worlds and Frans de Waal and Frans Lanting's Bonobo: The Forgotten Ape (LJ 2/1/97). It also contains a list of sanctuaries supported by the Jane Goodall Institute for the care of chimpanzees that are unable to be introduced back into the wild. Recommended for larger collections.--Raymond Hamel, Wisconsin Regional Primate Research Ctr. Lib., Madison Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.

Nichols (staff photographer for ) and famed ethologist Dr. Jane Goodall explore the relationship between humankind and its closest relative, the chimpanzee. They present this extraordinary animal in the wild, in captivity, and in sanctuaries created expressly for protection. The combination of color photographs and commentaries drawn from first-hand experience dramatizes the ways in which chimpanzees are physically, emotionally, and intellectually closer to us than we ever imagined, and how, paradoxically, we have forced them into a more human yet sadly less humane existence.
