The Uplift War - David Brin

No-one likes uppity monkey boys, or even uppity monkeys.

Humanity, being so cool and all, has done what none of those stody old slow types in the galaxy have done, raised non-sentient races to sentient intelligence. In this case, dolphins and apes, and working on the canine variety next. This makes the aliens unhappy, as the whole uplift another bunch means you get to exploit them for lots and lots of work and cash, to put it plainly.

The various Terrans have other ideas. Entertaining stuff.
