Zoologist Desmond Morris considers humans as being simply another animal species in this classic book first published in 1967. Heres the Naked Ape at his most primal in love, at work, at war. Meet man as he really is: relative to the apes, stripped of his veneer as we see him courting, making love, sleeping, socializing, grooming, playing. The Naked Ape takes its place alongside Darwins Origin of the Species, presenting man not as a fallen angel, but as a risen ape, remarkable in his resilience, energy & imagination, yet an animal nonetheless, in danger of forgetting his origins. With its penetrating insights on human beginnings, sex life, habits & our bonds to the animal kingdom, The Naked Ape is a landmark, at once provocative, compelling & timeless.
