Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

De Waal (Amory U.) has released this 25th anniversary edition of his classic work in anthropology that examines how chimpanzees wield power through intelligence and sexuality in the same way as humans. Anthropology students can draw parallels between the author's detailed case studies in primate behavior and corporate politics in the world of human beings, invoking Machiavellian concepts along the way. The new edition includes a new preface from De Waal that discusses the book's influence on primate studies as well as political science, and recent color photographs that illustrate the author's recent studies in the field.

Synopsis:

The first edition of Frans de Waal's Chimpanzee Politics was acclaimed not only by primatologists for its scientific achievement but also by politicians, business leaders, and social psychologists for its remarkable insights into the most basic human needs and behaviors. Twenty-five years later, this book is considered a classic. Featuring a new preface that includes recent insights from the author, this anniversary edition is a detailed and thoroughly engrossing account of rivalries and coalitions — actions governed by intelligence rather than instinct. 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.
