Review:

“A fascinating account of how animals have been regarded and treated from ancient times to the present day ... Buy this book for the history and the campaigning ... buy it for the psychology and the ideas too. Even if you don't agree with him, Ryder is never less than stimulating.” ―International Society for Applied Ethology Newsletter

“It would be difficult to find a text that provides a more comprehensive history of man's changing use and relationship to non-human animals. A book full of valuable observations and insights? This book has something important to say and Richard Ryder knows how to say it.” ―Freethinker (2000)

“Richard Ryder analyses such springs of human conduct as machismo, stoicism and squeamishness. He has never been afraid to court controversy or to unleash uncomfortable new ideas. This is a bracing book.” ―Times Literary Supplement
