about this item

Originally published in 1975, this ethical work defending animals as sentient beings and therefore due certain rights, jumpstarted Singer's notoriety as a polemical philosopher.

Since its original publication in 1975, this groundbreaking work has awakened millions of people to the existence of "speciesism"-our systematic disregard of nonhuman animals-inspiring a worldwide movement to transform our attitudes to animals and eliminate the cruelty we inflict on them.

In Animal Liberation, author Peter Singer exposes the chilling realities of today's "factory farms" and product-testing procedures-destroying the spurious justifications behind them, and offering alternatives 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, it is essential reading for the supporter and the skeptic alike.
