Peter Singer made animal rights an international concern when he first published In Defence of Animals and Animal Liberation over thirty years ago. In this revised edition, he brings together new essays by philosophers and activists, chronicling new thoughts on animal suffering, reassessing the question of personhood, and highlighting tales of effective advocacy. In addition, he lays out `Ten Tips for Activists', taking the reader beyond ethical theory and into the day-to-day campaigns for animal rights.From the Back Cover:
In Defense of Animals: The Second Wave brings together the best current ethical thinking about animals. Edited by Peter Singer, who made “speciesism” an international issue in 1975 when he published Animal Liberation, this new book presents the state of the animal movement that his classic work helped to inspire.
Long hailed as a brilliant and controversial philosopher, Singer has assembled incisive new articles by philosophers and by activists. In Defense of Animals is sure to inform and inspire all who want to understand, or contribute to, the unfolding moral revolution in the way we treat animals.
