Product Description

Review

' … masterfully integrates primatology and (paleo)anthropology …' Elisabetta Visalberghi, Science

Book Description

This book describes and analyses the tool-use of humankind's nearest relative, the chimpanzee. It focuses on field studies of these apes across Africa, comparing their customs to see if they can justifiably be termed cultural. It makes direct comparisons with the material culture of foraging peoples.

Format: Paperback
I gave this book 5 stars because it contains up-to-date information on chimps. If you already know the basics of this animal, then this book is a good purchase to expand your knowledge. It is ideal for university students taking a primate based module, or for the avid chimpanzee fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars A major scientific work; should change our view of culture 1 Jun. 1997
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
McGrew's work has (perhaps predictably) not had the effect on social science that it deserves. He challenges the usual belief that human culture is unique in ALL respects by showing that variations in chimp tool kits are comparable to variations in human tool assemblages. A thoughtful, well-researched, and interesting study
