The latest work I can think of on bonobos is "Chimpanzee Cultures", R.
Wrangham, W.C. McGrew, F.B.M. de Waal and P. Heltne. Harvard University
Press, 1994.

Hope that helps you out. There is also an article on them in the March issue
of the pop science mag: "Scientific American" that is kind of interesting.
