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
