The protection of animal rights is more than a modern, western phenomenon. In fact, there is a long history of concern for animals around the world, and it is this concern that underlies today’s animal rights movement.
The No-Nonsense Guide to Animal Rights explains the key issues, charts the growth of the movement, looks at welfare and protection laws, and makes connections between animal rights and other justice struggles. A practical day-to-day guide is included to help readers understand what they can do to minimize the exploitation of animals.
The No-Nonsense Guide to Animal Rights traces the origins of the movement, explains the ways in which animals are used and abused, and ultimately shows why animal liberation is human liberation.– Ingrid E Newkirk, found of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA)
