About this book

N.N. Ladygina-Kohts earned her degree in comparative psychology at Moscow University in 1917, then became the first curator of the Darwin Museum in Moscow. Her pioneering work with the chimpanzee, Joni, was reported throughout the continent during her lifetime, earning her a series of honors in the Soviet Union. Unfortunately, Infant Chimpanzee and Human Child, her diary comparing Joni's development with that of her son, Rudy, had never been translated completely. This volume presents the first complete English translation.

Media reviews

"A unique descriptive achievement [...] a healthy provocation to the modern reader's habitual psychological pigeon-holing [...] Today's students and other thoughtful readers should find in it an intriguing challenge: Much might be gained by convincingly filling the gap between the richness of the objective descriptions laid so generously before them and the justification of legitimate bases for ascribing particular states of emotion to these behaviors."
– Andrew Whiten, Science
