Summary
"Are animals more than property? In this book, Steven reveals that, while the way we view animals is changing rapidly, the courts remain mired in the dark ages." "Steven Wise draws vividly upon the work that the world's most prominent primatologists have done with the chimpanzees and bonobos with whom they work and share their lives. In this witty, moving, and impeccably researched book, he demonstrates that the cognitive, emotional, and social capacities of these apes should at last entitle them to freedom from imprisonment and abuse. Rattling the Cage has everything needed to convince judges, scientists, lawyers, and the millions of others who care deeply about animals of the injustice of denying them basic legal rights."--Jacket
