Media reviews

Excellent. An important study of the relationship between chimpanzees and their prey. - Jane Goodall "[An] entertaining analysis of the evolutionary whys, behavioural ecology wherefores and natural history hows of a fascinating predator-prey system...[The] wealth of detail makes it hard to believe that, until two decades ago, chimps were thought of as entirely peaceful vegetarians. Just read Craig Stanford's Chimpanzee and Red Colobus to discover how wrong we all were." - New Scientist
