Woods, Vanessa

First Edition, First Printing in clean unclipped dust jacket. Clean beige boards with green spine, bright gold lettering on spine. No bumping or wear.

They are an extremely endangered ape and share 98.7 percent of our DNA. But while chimpanzees live in male-dominated societies with sexual coercion, infanticide, and war, bonobos are peaceful and female dominated; there is no infanticide or war, and sex is used to resolve conflict. The question is, how much of us is chimpanzee, how much is bonobo?? This book is a memoir of Vanessa Woods's journey to answer these questions. 026648
