How our animal heritage affects the way we live 20020220

More than 98 percent of human genes are shared with two species of chimpanzee.

The 'third' chimpanzee is man. Jared Diamond surveys out life-cycle, culture, sexuality and destructive urges both towards ourselves and the planet to explore the ways in which we are uniquely human yet still influenced by our animal origins.
