Peterson and Goodall present an illuminating study of the current threats to wild chimpanzees' habitats and the many abuses that chimps have endured and continue to face at the hands of humans. Discusses conservation issues and ethical questions concerning keeping chimpanzees in captivity, whether as pets or for entertainment or research, and offers firsthand evidence of the drastically declining numbers of chimpanzees in the wild.
"Visions of Caliban is beautifully written, easily read, and ethically challenging – it just might become primatology's Silent Spring."
- Alison Jolly, Nature
