About this title

Synopsis:

Henry Spira's extraordinary life as an activist shows that an individual can make a difference. Inspired by the thinking of Peter Singer in the early 1970's, Henry turned Singer's ethical lessons into action, launching campaigns against organizations whose practices caused unnecessary suffering to animals. By thinking about how giant corporations, including Revlon, Avon, Perdue, and McDonald's, might be vulnerable, he found ways to change their practices and save the lives and health of animals all over the United States. This book tells the inspiring story of a lifelong activist whose creativity and careful thought set the standard for the animal rights movement in the twentieth century.

About the Author:

Peter Singer is DeCamp Professor of Bioethics at Princeton University and the author of many books, including Animal Liberation: A New Ethics of Our Treatment of Animals (Random House), and Practical Ethics (Cambridge University Press).

Henry Spira lives in New York City.
