About this book

Fascinating account of fifteen years spent by the author observing a troop of baboons, nicknamed the Pumphouse Gang, which has revealed startling new aspects of primate behaviour. Second edition contains a new introduction and epilogue that place Strum's work in the context of the current conservation crisis.
