The Hunting Apes:
Meat Eating and the Origins of Human Behavior
Craig B. Stanford

Book Description | Table of Contents
Chapter 1

ADDITIONAL REVIEWS:

"The Hunting Apes is a very enjoyable and quick read, written for a broad audience. . . . These are well-written synopses--good for students, the general informed public, and those in anthropology and other sub-disciplines who want to keep up on these topics."--M. Tappen, Journal of the Royal Anthropological Institute

ENDORSEMENTS:

"The 'Man the Hunter' model of the 1960s was simultaneously one of the most influential and reviled of ideas about human origins. It fell easy victim to numerous criticisms (drawn especially from work on chimpanzees), and dropped from favor during the 1970s. There was, however, a baby in that bath and Stanford has rescued it, dried it off, and refined it with volumes of new data and theory. The result is a sophisticated and provocative synthesis of ëMan the Hunterí and chimpanzee behavioral ecology."--Jim Moore, University of California, San Diego

"Stanford's essay neatly captures the powerful role that hunting has played in human evolution and in the minds of evolutionists."--Richard Wrangham, Harvard University, author of Demonic Males: Apes and the Originis of Human Violence
