Apes and Human Evolution
By Tuttle, Russell H.
Pp. xiv, 1056; 16 color plates with numerous separate color photos, numerous text-figures and photos in the text. Publisher’s original black cloth, lettered in copper on the spine, pictorial white dust jacket lettered in black and red, thick lg 8vo. In this masterful work, the author synthesizes a vast research literature in primate evolution and behavior to explain how apes and humans evolved in relation to on another, and why humans became a bipedal, tool-making culture-inventing species distinct from other hominoids. Along the way, he refutes the influential theory that men are killer apes—sophisticated but instinctively aggressive and destructive beings (from the jacket flap). No ownership marks and no signs of use.
