Editors’ Abstract

  1. If there is a single person who has made people appreciate that chimpanzees are individuals with different personalities and complex social relationships, that person is Jane Goodall. Her book In the Shadow of Man, based on her long familiarity with a community of chimpanzees in the Gombe region of Tanzania, was an international bestseller. More recently she has also published a detailed academic study of chimpanzees, The Chimpanzees of Gombe, as well as the popular Through a Window.
  2. In the following statement of her reasons for supporting the Declaration on Great Apes, Goodall draws on more than thirty years' experience of observing chimpanzees and thinking about the human-chimpanzee relationship.
