Summary
William McGrew reveals that the astonishing variation in chimpanzee behaviour more closely resembles cultural variety in humans than the simpler behavior of other animal species. This book demonstrates that cultural primatology may therefore help reconstruct the cultural evolution of Homo sapiens from earlier forms including pre-humans
