Dr. Goodall crowns her first quarter-century with the chimpanzees of Gombe by giving a comprehensive, up-to-date account of her work, a grand synthesis of animal behavior that presents a vast amount of information about man's nearest phylogenetic relative. 336 black-and-white, 23 color halftones. Illustrations.
An historical document. The book gives us for the first time a comprehensive analysis of chimpanzee behavior in its full range of activities, and draws extensively from the work of other investigators as well as from the studies at Gombe...With "The Chimpanzees of Gombe," Goodall's primacy in animal behavior studies is brought into clear focus. Like the man [Louis Leakey] who hired her as an office worker 26 years ago, Goodall may already qualify as a legend in her own time.
