Product description

Immensely influential and powerful, Animal Liberation is also highly unusual. A comprehensive analysis of conditions in factory farms and animal laboratories, it compellingly argues that we should stop eating meat. A work of philosophy, it includes recipes for vegetarian food. In this revised edition, Peter Singer discusses the evolution of the animal rights movement and the extent to which his own views have changed since first publication in 1975. He also graphically updates his account of what is being done to animals in the name of scientific, military and commercial research.

Review quote

"It galvanised a generation into action. Groups sprang up around the world, equipped with a new vocabulary, a new set of ethics and a new sense of mission...Singer's book is widely known as the bible of the animal liberation movement." Independent on Sunday "A reasoned plea for the humane treatment of animals that galvanised the animal-rights movement the way the Rachel Carson's Silent Spring drew activists to environmentalism." New York Times "Important and responsible...Everyone ought to read it." Richard Adams "Probably the single most influential document in the history of recent movements concerned with animal welfare" Guardian
