How does city life change the way we act? What accounts for the increasing prevalence of violence and anxiety in our world? In this new edition of his controversial 1969 bestseller, The Human Zoo, renowned zoologist Desmond Morris argues that many of the social instabilities we face are largely a product of the artificial, impersonal confines of our urban surroundings. Indeed, our behavior often startlingly resembles that of captive animals, and our developed and urbane environment seems not so much a concrete jungle as it does a human zoo. Animals do not normally exhibit stress, random violence, and erratic behavioruntil they are confined. Similarly, the human propensity toward antisocial and sociopathic behavior is intensified in todays cities. Morris argues that we are biologically still tribal and ill-equipped to thrive in the impersonal urban sprawl. As important and meaningful today as it was a quarter-century ago, The Human Zoo sounds an urgent warning and provides startling insight into our increasingly complex lives.

Civilization has changed so much about how we live as a species, can we still say we are human? What does it even mean to be human? How did we arrive where we are now with such a massive, precariously unnatural, global civilization? And is there anyway out of what looks like a terrifying future of environmental destruction, collapse and chaos? The simplicity of the answer may surprise you and give you real hope that you have some personal power to change it, now. "Here's one author who can't be accused of not going deep enough!" Bill McKibben, author Eaarth: Making a Life on a Tough New Planet.
