The Naked Ape: A Zoologist's Study of the Human Animal - Desmond Morris
"Stimulating . . . thought-provoking . . . [Morris] has introduced some novel and challenging ideas and speculations."
—Natural History Magazine
Here is the naked ape at his most primal-in love, work, and war. Meet man as he really is: relative to the apes, the greatest primate of all, stripped of his civilized veneer as we see him courting, making love, sleeping, socializing, grooming, playing the family game. Zoologist Desmond Morris's classic takes its place alongside the works of Margaret Mead and Charles Darwin's Origin of Species, presenting man not as a fallen angel but as a risen ape, remarkable in his resilience, energy, and imagination, yet an animal nonetheless, in danger of forgetting his origins.
