A fascinating insight into animal rights,
This review is from: The Great Ape Project: Equality beyond Humanity (Paperback)
This collection of essays is a compelling read. It brings together many of the world's foremost authorities on animal rights and primate behaviour. While the book may seem somewhat daunting at first glance it is, in fact, very readable. It covers many different aspects of the lives of primates and gives a fascinating insight into their behaviour. It is one of the most compelling and convincing arguments for extending some basic 'human' rights to include our humanoid relatives. The book reminds us that these primates are not simply 'animals' to be used as we see fit, but are in actual fact closely related - both evolutionarily and behaviourally - to us. A must read for anyone who is concerned by the state of the world today.
