It’s been more than two decades since the first edition of this landmark book garnered public accolades for its sensitive yet honest and forthright approach to the many disquieting questions surrounding the emotional debate over animal rights. Is moral concern something owed by human beings only to human beings?
Drawing upon his philosophical expertise, his extensive experience of working with animal issues all over the world, and his knowledge of biological science, Bernard E. Rollin — now widely recognized as the father of veterinary ethics — develops a compelling analysis of animal rights as it is emerging in society. The result is a sound basis for rational discussion and social policy development in this area of rapidly growing concern. He believes that society must elevate the moral status of animals and protect their rights as determined by their natures. His public speaking and published works have contributed to passage of major federal legislation designed to increase the well-being of laboratory animals.
This new third edition is greatly expanded and includes a new chapter on animal agriculture, plus additional discussions of animal law, companion animal issues, genetic engineering, animal pain, animal research, and many other topics.

Bernard E. Rollin (Fort Collins, CO), University Distinguished Professor at Colorado State University, is also a professor of philosophy, professor of biomedical sciences, professor of animal sciences, and university bioethicist at the same institution. Rollins is the author of fourteen books and over three hundred articles and is the principal architect of 1985 federal legislation dealing with the welfare of experimental animals.Review:
"Animal Rights and Human Morality is as relevant and important today as it was when first published. And just as necessary, for despite all we know about the minds and especially the feelings of animals, routine abuse of animals continues. Peppered with countless stories of his encounters with tough stockmen and steely laboratory workers, Rollin’s voice is an important one in the struggle for animal rights. Rollins brings a philosopher’s voice of reason to the often heated debate about cruelty to animals."
