About the author (1971)

Born in Wiltshire, England, in 1928, Desmond Morris got his undergraduate degree in zoology from Birmingham University and his doctorate from Oxford. He became curator of mammals at the London Zoo in 1959, a post he held for eight years. He was already the author of some fifty scientific papers and
seven books before completing his now famous The Naked Ape in 1967, which has sold more than ten million copies throughout the world and was translated into almost every known language. The Human Zoo and Intimate Behavior, the books that followed it in The Naked Ape Trilogy, likewise have sold
millions of copies in dozens of languages across the globe. Morris has also become well known for his many television programs and films on human and animal behaviour. His accessible, hands-on approach has made him popular with both adults and children. Morris is the author of over thirty books.
His most recent works include The Human Animal and Bodytalk: a World Guide to Gestures. He lives in Oxford, England. The Human Zoo is also available in paperback from Kodansha Globe.
