Praise for Animal Equality
"Brilliant.... A great step forward in the march for justice for all persons, human and nonhuman." —Jim Mason, coauthor of Animal Factories
"Powerfully eloquent [and] illuminating. Readers will be hard-pressed to ignore the book's challenge to the moral and linguistic status quo. —Evelyn Pluhar, author of Beyond Prejudice and Professor of Philosophy, Pennsylvania State University
"Anyone interested either in changing the status of animals, or in the study of language and its role in culture, will find Animal Equality a valuable book. —Peter Singer, author of Animal Liberation and Professor of Bioethics, Princeton University
"A major contribution to the advancement of both animal protection and our humanity." —Dr. Michael W. Fox, Senior Scholar, Bioethics, The Humane Society of the U.S.
"A giant step for animalkind. Animal Equality is intensely powerful: groundbreaking, definitive, comprehensive, compelling. Unparalleled in scope and exhaustively researched, it is a remarkable achievement. The book offers revelations about everyday language choices and an original, thorough exploration of the language of nonhuman-animal exploitation. Animal Equality establishes speciesism and language as a field of study while providing the benchmark for the field. Nothing will surpass this work for years, if ever." —Carol J. Adams, author of The Sexual Politics of Meat
"Brilliant and devastating. Animal Equality is a book of monumental importance for animal rights. A tour de force that has no equal, it documents the cruelty to which nonhuman animals are routinely subjected and shows that speciesism pervades our language. After reading the book, who can doubt that the way we talk about nonhuman animals perpetuates, even as it sometimes masks, the ruthless tyranny we exercise over them? —Tom Regan, author of The Case for Animal Rights and Professor of Philosophy, North Carolina State University
