Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

? The Book That Started A Revolution ?

Since its original publication in 1975, this groundbreaking work has awakened millions of concerned men and women to the shocking abuse of animals everywhere — inspiring a worldwide movement to eliminate much of the cruel and unnecessary laboratory animal experimentation of years past. In this newly revised and expanded edition, author Peter Singer exposes the chilling realities of today's "factory farms" and product-testing procedures — offering sound, humane solutions to what has become a profound environmental and social as well as moral issue. An important and persuasive appeal to conscience, fairness, decency and justice, Animal Liberation is essential reading for the supporter and the skeptic alike.

Review:

"A most important book that will change the way many of us look at animals — and, ultimately, at ourselves." Chicago Tribune

Review:

"This book is a must...not just for every animal lover but for every civilized reader." Cleveland Amory

Review:

"Singer's documentation is unrhetorical and unemotional, his arguments tight and formidable, for he bases his case on neither personal nor religious nor highly abstract philosophical principles, but on moral positions most of us already accept." The New York Times Book Review

Review:

"A most important and responsible work. Everyone ought to read it, and ponder deeply whether we do not need to change our view of the world and our responsibility toward its creatures." Richard Adams, author of Watership Down
