Description



About the Book



An animal rights lawyer explains how the failure to recognize the basic rights of chimpanzees and bonobos in light of modern scientific findings creates a glaring contradiction in our law. "A path-breaking book that makes it impossible to continue thinking of animals as mere property".--Peter Singer, Princeton University.



Book Synopsis



Rattling the Cage explains how the failure to recognize the basic legal rights of chimpanzees and bonobos in light of modern scientific findings creates a glaring contradiction in our law. In this witty, moving, persuasive, and impeccably researched argument, Wise demonstrates that the cognitive, emotional, and social capacities of these apes entitle them to freedom from imprisonment and abuse.
