About the Author:

John Napier is Visiting Professor of Primate Biology, Birkbeck College, London. Prior to this appointment he was the first Director of the Primate Biology Program at the Smithsonian Institution. He is President of Twycross Zoo in Leicestershire, famed throughout the world for its primate collections.

Review:

"The British primatologists John and Prue Napier have, during two decades, prepared both popular books and stringently technical volumes within their irresistible and active discipline. Now they have compiled another handsomely illustrated brief survey. Half of the book is a compact, full profile of these our kin, primates figured and described genus by genus the world around. The rest presents a clear and current account of the classification, origin, structure and behavior of the most distinctive order of mammals. The last chapter reviews the current understanding of human evolution, the jigsaw puzzle of our own origin that we crave to assemble out of so fragmentary a set of fossil pieces."
Philip Morrison, Scientific American

"A superb introduction to the most fascinating group of animals on earth."
Desmond Morris
