Produktbeschreibungen

From Publishers Weekly

Her first 10 years at Gombe (Tanzania) on the eastern shore of Lake Tanganyika produced the classic In the Shadow of Man. A fitting successor to that work, Goodall's newest continues the saga of the chimpanzee families with an engrossing account of animal behavior. She examines the mother-child relationship, noting that young males must sever the ties in order to learn male responsibiities (patrolling, repelling intruders, searching for food). There are profiles of special individuals: Goblin, who was determined to rise to the top and stay there; Jomeo, without social ambition; Gigi, a sterile female; Melissa, mother of successful offspring. Other stories of the chimpanzees include a brutal war between troops; a gruesome affair of cannibalism; incidents of injury, death and grief. The reader gets promptly involved with the characters--they have distinct personalities. In the final chapters, Goodall turns to the plight of wild chimpanzees today (loss of habitat) and the appalling living conditions of those in captivity (including laboratory animals). An important book for students of behavior. Photos.

From Library Journal

World renowned chimpanzee expert and field researcher Goodall scores another hit with this new account of her observances in the field. Readers who enjoyed Goodall's In the Shadow of Man ( LJ 12/1/71) will delight in this continuation of the familiar (human and animal) characters in new situations. Despite her depth of knowledge, Goodall has obviously kept her audience in mind; her book never gets bogged down by technical terminology. Instead, one encounters a very descriptive writing style in which Goodall strongly conveys the social forces that shape chimpanzee behavior and mirror those which must have faced early humans as well. Readers may not agree with the parallels Goodall draws between apes and humans, but they will neverthess be entertained by her theories. For more scientific information on the same subject, try Goodall's own The Chimpanzees of Gombe ( LJ 8/86). This more popular account is highly recommended for general readers with an interest in wildlife, conservation, and adventure.

A wonderful book, which describes the astoundingly complicated social structures of these animals, which are so like ourselves. Each animal has its own unique character and develops its own relationships with other members of the clan. Jane Goodall and her colleagues give each individual a name and she describes how they develop from birth until death and how their relationships with their mother, siblings and peers affect their social development and status within the group. Just like humans, chimpanzees live, hunt and make war together. Individual chimpanzees are just as loveable or detestable as humans and have a life span of fifty years. One of the most interesting books I have ever read.

In Through a Window, Dr. Jane Goodall gives an educational yet entertaining look into the world of chimpanzees. I was utterly absorbed in the book by the first chapter. If you are even remotely interested in chimpanzees or their close relationship to humans, you will thoroughly enjoy this book. It gives wonderful scientific insights into the systems of the chimpanzee community. I recommend that everyone read this book.

Foremost expert on chimpanzees, not only because of her first-hand, scientific knowledge of them, but because of her empathy with this species who is closer to us in genetic make-up than a gorilla, Jane Goodall's name is synonymous with advocate and scientist. Richard Leaky, world-renown paleoanthropologist, back in 1960 suggested to his secretary that we might learn more about how early man acted if someone conducted a long-term study of our closest relative. His stroke of genius was to suggest that Jane Goodall be the person to conduct this study. In this wonderful book, author and scientist Jane Goodall gives a brief overview of how she got into the chimpanzee business and why such studies are important to us. But, most of the book is about what Mrs. Goodall does best-observe chimpanzees. I mean really watch them, catalogue their every movement, watch every facial expression, every action, follow them through war, sex, discovery, grooming, interacting with other species, being born, growing up, getting themselves killed, and even finding things to laugh about. What Jane Goodall's four-decade work with chimpanzees has taught us is how appalling ignorant we are about the animals living today, and the inestimable loss we have incurred by not having done similar studies on the species we have extincted. If you don't know who Jane Goodall is (she's near the very top of my hero list) then pick up this book and find out.

A strickingly passionate and clear view of the reality of this species. But the book goes way beyond this. At the beginning I thought it was "a bit" self-centered, because of the slow beginning, all focused on the author's personal life and feelings. But after a few pages I discovered that was only the way to lead us in: going from our so mortal and human, personal vicessitudes, to LIFE. We believe we are the center of creation, but isn't wisdom also being humble? There is a sense of greatness in the 3s year story of this tribe... and yet it is all described through simple, everyday life! The author spends 300 pages to tell us how grand life is. How incredibly sensitive and logical. And then, in probably 10 pages we are abruptly brought back to how we "the elected" humans treat it! And even here, Jane Goodall does so with no morbid or romantic view, but with the researcher's eyes, looking for solutions, those possible in such a "human" world. Not only for animal lovers, but for all interested in psychology, antropology, life in general.

This book clearly deserves more than five stars.

Through a Window is the popular version of the first 30 years of Dr. Jane Goodall's pioneering primate research at the Gombe reserve in Africa. Arriving in Africa as a young woman who found she did not like office work, she looked for something to do. The legendary Dr. Louis Leakey became interested in the idea of doing parallel research on chimpanzees in the wild to shed light on the development of early man. He persuaded Dr. Goodall to trek into Gombe, and helped her raise money and respectability for the project. From the beginning, he knew it had to go on for at least 10 years. Overcoming great deprivations and dangers, Dr. Goodall turned this into one of the most important animal observation studies ever. In this book, you will get the highlights of what has been learned from that research.

The book emphasizes the closeness between humans and chimpanzees. The two species have 99 percent genetic similarity. Each can catch diseases that no other species can. In fact, Gombe was overwhelmed by a polio epidemic that affected the chimpanzees and the humans in the 1960s.

As you walk through the forest with Dr. Goodall, you will find behaviors that are very similar to what humans do. Is it any wonder that she supposes that chimpanzees feel many of the same emotions that humans do? The only major difference she finds is that chimpanzees never torture each other or other animals like humans do.

You will follow along with families of chimpanzees over three generations, and find out about what works well and what doesn't for them. There are even chapters about memorable individuals who had a large impact on the chimpanzee community.
