9780801886560: Chimpanzee Politics: Power and Sex among Apes
Críticas:

Even more enlightening than Machiavelli's The Prince, this book describes power takeovers and social organizations in a chimpanzee colony... I'll never look at academic or corporate politics the same way.

(Jim Collins Inc.)

Newt Gingrich has been an avid follower of de Waal's work for years. He has even placed de Waal's Chimpanzee Politics on his recommended reading list, along with better known texts such as the Declaration of Independence, the U.S. Constitution, and the Federalist Papers. What secrets has Gingrich gleaned from our simian cousins? In short, how to win power by forming tactical coalitions and mounting fierce psychological attacks on those blocking the way... It's a strategy Gingrich aped in his assault on former Speaker Jim Wright.

( Business Week)

Schmoozing. Scheming. Consensus building. You won't glean these management techniques from any business text. But you can't run your company without them. Take it from the apes... The author demonstrates that chimps are, in the broadest sense, political.

( Business Month)

The best book ever written on the social life of apes in captivity... The author has that special empathetic insight into the mind of the chimpanzee which is shared by few but can somehow be recognized by many.

( Human Ethology Newsletter)

Precise but eminently readable and indeed exciting... This excellent book achieves the dual goal which eludes so many writers about animal behavior?it will both fascinate the nonspecialist and be seen as an important contribution to science.

( Times Literary Supplement)

When I first read this book, I was in Dar es Salaam with Jane Goodall. I had just returned from observing chimpanzees for two weeks at Gombe. After the real-life experience, I expected a book about chimpanzee behavior?and at a zoo, at that?to make rather dull reading. But I was in for a surprise. De Waal's Chimpanzee Politics is as much fun as a tree full of wild chimps.

( American Journal of Primatology)

Críticas:

An excellent book... Just as fresh and thought-provoking in 2008 as it was in 1983.

Descripción JOHNS HOPKINS UNIVERSITY PRESS, United States, 2007. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. 25th anniversary ed. 246 x 173 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. 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.
