Describes and analyses the tool-use of the chimpanzee, focusing on field studies in Africa. The book evaluates the chimpanzee as an evolutionary model, showing that chimpanzee behaviour helps us to infer the origins of technology in human prehistory. Draws on the author's 20 years of research on chimpanzees, in nature and captivity.
