Book summary

When The Naked Ape was published in 1967 a new phrase entered the English language and many other languages besides. Desmond Morris's unique treatment of homo sapiens caught the imagination of the public and the media in an extraordinary way. In the three months after publication there were 1,883 column inches of reviews, scores of radio and television items, not to mention the gossip columns and newspaper cartoons. The Sunday Times called it 'the sort of book that changes lives'. Since then it has sold over eight million copies around the world. Now a captivating and pertinent collection of illustrations has been assembled to complement the arguments so provocatively and entertainingly conveyed in Dr Morris' text. Nearly twenty years after it first appeared we can reassess his controversial ideas with the help of the fifty-six pages of colour illuminating this beautiful book. [via]
