One of the leading bonobo researchers is Takayoshi Kano. Try an author

My favorite bonobo book is Frans de Waal's _Peacemaking Among Primates_,
1989, Harvard University Press, Cambridge. Actually the bonobos get only a
chapter; the other primates are chimpanzees, rhesus macaques, stump-tailed
macaques, and humans.
