Winner of the 1992 Science Book Prize, this book jumps off from the well-established fact that we share most of our DNA with the two species of chimp. American zoologist Diamond looks at how our evolutionary heritage has affected the way we behave, from sex to society, from the origins of language to the destruction of the environment. Will the 2 per cent difference between our genes and those of the chimps be enough to save us from destorying the world? (Kirkus UK)
More than 98% of human genes are shared with two species of chimpanzee. This is a survey of man's life-cycle, culture, sexuality and destructive urges - both towards ourselves and the planet - which explores the ways in which we are uniquely human, yet still influenced by our animal origins.
