9780976915911: Capers in the Churchyard: Animal Rights Advocacy in the Age of Terror

Capers in the Churchyard offers a fresh examination of conduct within a movement that has historically focused on the conduct of others. While noting the contradictions between the acts and ideals of activism that strikes the militant pose, Capers in the Churchyard uncovers the thinking under a spectrum of human ways of regarding the use of other animals. This lively and agile analysis will appeal to anyone interested in the dynamic of ethical movements.

About the Author:

Lee Hall writes and collaborates in the areas of migration, (non-)citizenship and detention, gender studies, food and agriculture, as well as animal and environmental ethics. Ten years of experience as an airline worker, and numerous encounters with shipped animals, forged Hall's interest in animal liberation philosophy. Hall earned a law degree at age 37 and went to work in immigration legal services, taught immigration and animal law at Rutgers University, then worked as an animal lawyer in the non-profit world for a decade. In 2014, Hall earned a Master of Laws in environmental law with a focus on climate change. Hall has been interviewed for Allegheny Front Environmental Radio, Alternet, and Court TV, and teaches at Widener University - Delaware Law.

Review:

Hall argues that we must break down hierarchical thinking [for] Â"the most comprehensive peace movement the world has ever known.Â" -- E Magazine September/October 2006

Hall urges advocates to focus on ethical activism that targets the root causes of animal exploitation: the claims of dominion. --VegNews November/December 2006 VegNews November/December 2006
