Editorial Reviews

Review

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

Laelaps

Review

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.
