Product description

Review

"Readable, surprising and provocative" (The Times)

"I really enjoyed The Naked Ape by Desmond Morris. It was published in 1967 and is often a very amusing zoological perspective on human beings. The chapter on sex is hilarious" (KT Tunstall Independent)

"Stimulating" (Arthur Koestler)

"Thought-provoking...Morris has introduced some novel and challenging ideas" (Natural History)

"Fascinating" (Sunday Times)

Synopsis

Here is 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, socialising, grooming, playing. Zoologist Desmond Morris's classic takes its place alongside Darwin's "Origin of the 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. With its penetrating insights on man's beginnings, sex life, habits and our astonishing bonds to the animal kingdom, "The Naked Ape" is a landmark, at once provocative, compelling and timeless.
