Ebook Information

The Global Guide to Animal Protection

An interdisciplinary compendium of worldwide animal rights issues

Raising awareness of human indifference and cruelty toward animals, The Global Guide to Animal Protection includes more than 180 introductory articles that survey the extent of worldwide human exploitation of animals from a variety of perspectives. In addition to entries on often disturbing examples of human cruelty toward animals, the book provides inspiring accounts of attempts by courageous individuals--including Jane Goodall, Shirley McGreal, Biruté Mary Galdikas, Bernard E. Rollin, and Roger Fouts--to challenge and change exploitative practices.

As concern for animals and their welfare grows, this volume will be an indispensable aid to general readers, activists, scholars, and students interested in developing a keener awareness of cruelty to animals and considering avenues for reform. Also included is a special foreword by Archbishop Desmond Tutu, urging readers to seek justice and protection for all creatures, humans and animals alike.

"An excellent and trusted resource."--The Vegan

"An intriguing array of eye-opening information, covering economic, legal, religious, ecological, moral, and biomedical viewpoints."--Choice

"This broadly appealing multidisciplinary work will interest scholars in the sciences and humanities as well as general readers committed to animal welfare issues. While it draws attention to many contemptible forms of animal abuse, it also offers glimmers of hope by highlighting the positive work of numerous animal advocates who work to protect our nonhuman cohabitants of planet Earth."--Marc R. Fellenz, author of The Moral Menagerie: Philosophy and Animal Rights

"Even when faced with urgent human problems, we should not overlook the issue of justice to animals. . . . This Global Guide reflects a growing worldwide sensitivity to animals and a developing sense that--as a matter of justice--they deserve our compassion and respect. It has my warm support."--Archbishop Desmond Tutu, from the book's foreword
