Cavalieri, P. and P. Singer, Eds. (1993). The Great Ape Project: Equality Beyond Humanity. New York, St. Martins Press.

This collection of articles presents a wealth of information on great apes, and why we as humans should be considered a part of this group which also includes gorillas, chimpanzees and orang-utans. Articles include texts describing long term research projects on great apes in the wild, on teaching them sign language, on their mental capacities, on the physical similarities between all members of the great ape category, on the definition of personhood, the current status and treatment of great apes, and what these topics say about the moral and legal status of great apes. This is an interesting book full of amazing facts about great apes that is also quite provocative ethically.
