Chimpanzee Politics: Power and Sex among Apes

Chimpanzee Politics: Power and Sex among Apes Lowest new price: $9.99
Lowest used price: $2.24
List price: $26.95
Author: Frans de Waal
Brand: Brand: Johns Hopkins University Press

The first edition of Frans de Waal's Chimpanzee Politics was acclaimed not only by primatologists for its scientific achievement but also by a much broader audience of politicians, business leaders, and social psychologists for its remarkable insights into very basic human needs and behaviors. In this revised edition―featuring a new gallery of color photographs along with a new introduction and epilogue―de Waal expands and updates his story of the Arnhem colony and its continuing political upheavals. We learn the fate of many memorable chimpanzees and meet the colony's current leaders and their allies. The new edition remains a detailed and thoroughly engrossing account―of sexual rivalries and coalitions, of actions governed by intelligence rather than instinct―and it reaffirms the complex bond between humans and their closest living relatives. As we watch the chimpanzees of Arnhem behave in ways we recognize from Machiavelli (and from the nightly news), de Waal reminds us again that the roots of politics are older than humanity.

The great apes, like humans, can recognize themselves in mirrors. They communicate by sound and gesture, form bands along what can only be called political lines, and sometimes engage in what is very clearly organized warfare. (Less frequently, too, they practice cannibalism.) In Chimpanzee Politics Frans de Waal, a longtime student of simian behavior, analyzes the behavior of a captive tribe of chimpanzees, comparing its actions with those of ape societies in the wild. What he finds is often not pleasant: chimps seem capable of astonishing deviousness and savagery, which has obvious implications for the behavior their human cousins sometimes exhibit.

The Anatomy of the Horse (Dover Anatomy for Artists)

The Anatomy of the Horse (Dover Anatomy for Artists) Lowest new price: $11.06
Lowest used price: $8.75
List price: $21.95
Author: George Stubbs
Brand: Stubbs, George

George Stubbs (1724–1806), an English artist famous for his portraits of thoroughbred race horses and for other animal paintings, was also the author of the illustrations and text of The Anatomy of the Horse, one of the truly remarkable anatomical studies of its subject. First published in 1766, Stubbs' work was based on numerous dissections, a practice far from generally accepted in his century. Stubbs' horses, shown in this edition on 36 large plates, are memorable for their uncanny life-like quality, nobility, and extreme anatomical precision.
In this systematic study, Stubbs depicts the horse in three positions ― side, front, and back. He first presents the skeleton alone in each of these three positions, then devotes to each position five studies of layers of muscles, fascias, ligaments, nerves, arteries, veins, glands, and cartilages. Accompanying each of these eighteen etchings is a schematic etched outline with lettered parts that are keyed to the identifying text. The text is given both in Stubbs' original version and in a modernized version prepared in the Thirties by J. C. McCunn and C. W. Ottaway.

Healing the Pain of Pet Loss: Letters in Memoriam

Healing the Pain of Pet Loss: Letters in Memoriam Lowest new price: $10.00
Lowest used price: $6.95
List price: $18.95
Author: Kymberly Smith
Brand: Brand: Charles Press Pubs(PA)

This book is a collection of inspiring and often heart-wrenching letters written to the author about their own experiences with losing a beloved pet. Representing a wide variety of grief experiences, this one-of-a-kind book takes an intimate look at the way we react to the loss of our animal friends and how others can help or hurt the healing process that follows such a loss. While there is no magic cure for getting over a loss or even adjusting to it, one surprisingly simple method that has helped many people is talking and listening to others who have experienced a similar incident the people-helping-people dynamic known as self-help. In this sense, Healing the Pain of Pet Loss is a self-help group in a book and while, of course, there is not the verbal sharing that occurs when people are physically together, this book inspires a similar kind of interaction between the book reader and the letter writers.

By reading another person s story of loss, readers will be able to discover how others felt and reacted, as well as how others solved their problems and coped or did not.

With the companionship of the letter writers, readers will also feel that they are not alone in their grief experiences and that they are not abnormal or simply overreacting something that many of those that contributed letters reported feeling.

Because issues of death and dying invariably raise questions about our purpose on earth and what occurs after life has ended, a special section has been included that discusses how different religions view animals' place in the world and in the afterlife.

There is also an extremely helpful annotated listing of the best Internet resources dedicated to helping people who are grieving over the loss of an animal friend as well as an annotated bibliography of helpful books, a listing of telephone hotline numbers and places to contact for advice and assistance.

This special book will be a very comforting resource for everyone who has loved and lost an animal companion. It will also be an important resource for people who frequently interact with people who have experienced the loss of a pet such as veterinarians, teachers, psychologists, social workers and counselors.
