Manwatching is a new, different way of looking at your fellow man. In MANWATCHING, Desmond Morris has taken his work on human behaviour an important step beyond the controversial ideas set out in his earlier work, and presents the familiar in an unfamiliar light. He shows how people - even in a highly ordered modern society -- signal to each other their attitudes, desires and innermost feelings more powerfully through unconscious bodily movements than by word of mouth.
Since writing THE NAKED APE, Dr Morris has visited, fifteen countries, collecting countless observations of ways in which people act -- in public and in private. Now with the aid of a remarkable collection of drawings, photographs and historical prints, he guides the reader through a fascinating labyrinth of hunting, mating, status, territorial, leadership, ritual and taboo gestures and postures. For to understand what it is that makes people tick is to gain tolerance when confronted with human conflicts and tensions. And far from becoming remote and uncertain, the manwatcher instead finds himself more at ease in difficult situations, understanding them and can be more deeply involved with his fellow men.
