The No-Nonsense Guide to Animal Rights.
You might think that the protection of animals' rights is a modern, western concern. In fact people all over the world and down the age have cared what happens to animals, and not just the cute mammals.
Today animals need protecting more than ever. Some are bred for laboratories, for zoos or hunting. Others are reared intensively on farms. And those out in the wild are losing their habitats to logging and oil exploration.
This No-Nonsense Guide explains the key issues, charts the growth of the animal rights movement and looks at the welfare and protection laws. And it includes a practical day-to-day guide to what you can do to minimize exploitation.
