Eating Apes

Eating Apes is a strange stew – an emotive account of the bushmeat trade, and the threat it poses to the African apes, that is both popular and polemical. As such, it may not be to everybody's taste. Nevertheless, it is an absorbing mixture of biography, biology, anthropology, politics, economics and ethics. It is also thoroughly researched.
