A revised and improved edition of a book in continuing demand. Do
animals have rights? If not, do we have duties towards them? If so,
what duties? These and a myriad of other issues are discussed in
this brilliantly argued book, published in association with the
leading think-tank Demos. Why are animal-rights groups so keen to
protect the rights of badgers and foxes but not of rats mice or
even humans? How can we bridge the growing gap between rural
producers and urban consumers? Why is raising animals for fur more
heinous than raising them for their meat? Are we as human beings
driving other species either to extinction or to a state of
dependency? This paperback edition is fully updated with new
chapters on the livestoick crisis, fishing and BSE and a layman's
guide introduction to philosophical concepts, the book presents a
radical respponse to the defenders of animal rights and a challenge
to those who think that because they are kind to their pets, they
are therefore good news for animals.
