Reviews

Praise for The New Chimpanzee by Craig B. Stanford (Harvard, 2018):

"Stanford is a talented and fluent writer as well as an accomplished researcher." --The Wall Street Journal

Praise for Planet Without Apes by Craig B. Stanford (Belknap, 2014):

"Craig Stanford's book makes compelling reading. [The great apes] have helped us better understand our own behavior. Now it is our turn to help them, and when you read this book, you will realize that we MUST." --Jane Goodall

"Stanford reveals a complex web of cultural, social, economic and biological issues that explain why this problem is so exceedingly difficult to solve." ―The Washington Post

"In his wide-ranging call for action, Stanford lays out the critical threats, arguing that humanity's closest cousins are viewed as savage 'others' and subjected to a genocidal urge last seen in the colonial era." --Nature

"This is a timely call for effective action." ―Publishers Weekly

Praise for The Hunting Apes by Craig B. Stanford (Princeton, 1999):

"Stanford writes clearly and often deftly, and with admirable concision." --The Baltimore Sun

" This book will go a long way in explaining why physical anthropologists and their colleagues fight so much." --Times Literary Supplement

"A brave academic endeavor and a fine piece of popular science writing." --New Scientist
