by

Rattling the Cage: Toward Legal Rights for Animals Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

Synopsis:

This is an impassioned, fascinating, and in many ways startling book. --Cass Sunstein, New York Times Book Review.

Synopsis:

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.
