GOODALL, Jane and BEKOFF, Marc. The Ten Trusts. What We Must Do to Care for the Animals We Love. (New York): HarperSanFrancisco, (2002). Octavo, original blue paper boards, original dust jacket. $350.
First edition of Goodall's and noted biologist Marc Bekoff's guide for a "more ethical attitude toward all creatures," inscribed by her on the title page,"For T—, D— & B— Together we make a difference, Jane Goodall."
In Ten Trusts, Goodall and Bekoff, cofounders of Ethologists for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, offer, in Goodall's words, ten core productive strategies—Ten Trusts—for achieving "a closer connection with the natural world and a more ethical attitude toward all creatures." The book's central theme, she writes, "is one I have been talking and writing about since I began to study chimpanzees in 1960—the importance and value of the individual… the Ten Trusts in this book are designed not just to 'melt the ice' in our hearts. If we put them into practice in our lives, they will not only change our perspectives, but how we live on this planet." To eminent religious scholar Huston Smith, Ten Trusts is "the Ten Commandments for the future of advanced life on our planet." "First Edition" on copyright page.
