About the Author

Erika Fleury fell in love with primatology while completing her English degree at University of Delaware. After much involvement with primate sanctuaries, she decided to write about the protections of nonhuman primates because she feels that by documenting information related to their welfare, she can best contribute to their future well-being. Erika lives in the northwest hills of Connecticut with her husband, daughter, and tiny dog.

While reading this book, I was amazed at the many views covered that I had never before thought about. It truly opened my eyes and mind to the unethical treatment of all animals and not just primates. I was particularly impressed where the author discusses how closely related we are to nonhuman primates, separated from the great apes by just one gene. Where do we draw the line about who has the right to control or limit the freedom of the other?

Kudos to the author for informing readers about the thousands of nonhuman primates that have been abused and neglected in roadside attractions, zoos and laboratories, simply to entertain and benefit mankind.

One quote from Chapter 8 says so much, "People who believe that animals are happy living in captivity because they have their basic needs met -- be it as pets, actors, or in zoos or labs -- would certainly resist imprisonment themselves."

This book was both thought provoking and an easy read.

...someone has written a cogent, insightful book on this topic. Author Fleury delivers a sweeping view of the fast-changing and controversial world of nonhuman primate rights. Her detailed research is impressive and she carefully balances nonhuman primate advocacy and the conflicts inherent to the topic. Readers should not be put off by the first chapter; while necessary, it is a bit tedious. Overall, Monkey Business is a welcomed addition that will enhance understanding of nonhuman primate rights.

Monkey Business is a comprehensive, well written and thoughtful overview of a subject that should be the concern of anyone who cherishes our world and the animals who inhabit it. While the author has a point of view, she provides a wealth of information and insights without being preachy. You'll learn a ton and enjoy the process. And you'll never look at a circus chimp the same way.

I'm thrilled that Erika Fleury took the time to write this most valuable book. It's not only a thorough history of primate protection/rights, but also an easy read. I find myself continually go back to it for facts about which I was unaware. Highly recommended to a broad audience, including those who want to learn basics about our closest relatives.
