I'm just looking for any thoughts and opinions regarding Desmond Morris'
treatment of War and aggressive behavior among primates as it relates to the
anthropology of war (in the book _THE NAKED APE_).

Sure enough, Morris has been said to be more of an entertainer than an
academian (why cannot a person be both?), however, certainly many of his
statements are founded at least partially on scientific grounds?! So, I
would like to pick up a level of discussion among those interested.
(IE-Let's try not to clog up the net . . . emailing me personally would be
probably the most considerate of options).

peace, NOW!!!
