For as long as we can remember, humans have often described chimpanzees as a barbaric species fueled by violence, but today, this book will clarify this misconception about this species of ape. After decades of observing and documenting chimpanzees in the captive colony of Arnhem in the Netherlands, the author discovered that the chimpanzees in Arnhem often preferred to utilize political means rather than violence in solving problems. Their deep desire for peace, restraint in violence, tolerance, and care for their females and children show another side to their social patterns that is worthy of our reflection and study.

Frans de Waal is a renowned Dutch psychologist, zoologist, and ecologist. He is the Charles Howard Candler professor of Primate Behavior at Emory University. In 2007, TIME magazine named him among the top 100 most influential people in the world. He is also one of the best-known primatologists in the world. Major works of de Waal include Our Inner Ape, and Are We Smart Enough to Know How Smart Animals Are?. We have previously unlocked his book: The Age of Empathy in one of our previous bookeys, and this book, Chimpanzee Politics: Power and Sex Among Apes is his most influential work.
