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. "A path-breaking book that makes it impossible to continue thinking of animals as mere property".--Peter Singer, Princeton University.

I'm lucky enough to be taking a class with Steven Wise and am so glad this book is part of the syllabus. It does a great job detailing the complicated and often nonsensical history of animal rights law. While often depressing due to the subject matter, but it ends on a positive note that makes the reader feel that the tide is finally changing for good.
