This remarkable primate with the curious name is challenging established views on human evolution The bonobo least known of the great apes is a female centered egalitarian species that has been dubbed the make love not war primate by specialists In bonobo society females form alliances to intimidate males sexual behavior in virtually every partner combination replaces aggression and serves many social functions and unrelated groups mingle instead of fighting The species s most striking achievement is not tool use or warfare but sensitivity to others br br In the first book to combine and compare data from captivity and the field Frans de Waal a world renowned primatologist and Frans Lanting an internationally acclaimed wildlife photographer present the most up to date perspective available on the bonobo Focusing on social organization de Waal compares the bonobo with its better known relative the chimpanzee The bonobo s relatively nonviolent behavior and the tendency for females to dominate males confront the evolutionary models derived from observing the chimpanzee s male power politics cooperative hunting and intergroup warfare Further the bonobo s frequent imaginative sexual contacts along with its low reproduction rate belie any notion that the sole natural purpose of sex is procreation Humans share over percent of their genetic material with the bonobo and the chimpanzee Is it possible that the peaceable bonobo has retained traits of our common ancestor that we find hard to recognize in ourselves br br Eight superb full color photo essays offer a rare view of the bonobo in its native habitat in the rain forests of Zaire as well as in zoos and research facilities Additional photographs and highlighted interviews with leading bonobo experts complement the text This book points the way to viable alternatives to male based models of human evolution and will add considerably to debates on the origin of our species Anyone interested in primates gender issues evolutionary psychology and exceptional wildlife photography will find a fascinating companion in i Bonobo The Forgotten Ape i, No description available, An important and timely message about the biological roots of human kindness br Desmond Morris author of i The Naked Ape i br br Are we our brothers keepers Do we have an instinct for compassion Or are we as is often assumed only on earth to serve our own survival and interests In this thought provoking book the acclaimed author of i Our Inner Ape i examines how empathy comes naturally to a great variety of animals including humans br br By studying social behaviors in animals such as bonding the herd instinct the forming of trusting alliances expressions of consolation and conflict resolution Frans de Waal demonstrates that animals and humans are preprogrammed to reach out He has found that chimpanzees care for mates that are wounded by leopards elephants offer reassuring rumbles to youngsters in distress and dolphins support sick companions near the water s surface to prevent them from drowning From day one humans have innate sensitivities to faces bodies and voices we ve been designed to feel for one another br br De Waal s theory runs counter to the assumption that humans are inherently selfish which can be seen in the fields of politics law and finance and which seems to be evidenced by the current greed driven stock market collapse But he cites the public s outrage at the U S government s lack of empathy in the wake of Hurricane Katrina as a significant shift in perspective one that helped Barack Obama become elected and ushered in what may well become an Age of Empathy Through a better understanding of empathy s survival value in evolution de Waal suggests we can work together toward a more just society based on a more generous and accurate view of human nature br br Written in layman s prose with a wealth of anecdotes wry humor and incisive intelligence i The Age of Empathy i is essential reading for our embattled times, No description available
