In this book we have assembled a truly impressive team of writers, thinkers, and advocates to discuss the very pressing question: Why do we love but exploit animals?
In many ways, our thinking about and treatment of animals tells us a great deal about human nature, including topics such as: How do we act out of line with our own set of moral standards to do no harm? How do we rationalize our actions that hurt others?
This book will be of great interest to those interested in learning about and promoting animal welfare, with many of the central figures in this struggle providing their voices and insights.
Critically, here we have brought together academics and advocates in a unique book that provides a wide lens to the central "animal question" that continues to engage and haunt humanity's conscience.
