From the Publisher‘A very useful guide to the current state of the debate aboutthe moral status of animals, and the major issues about how weshould treat them.’
Peter Singer, Princeton University
"Garner's book will be of great value for the non-professionalphilosopher who is looking for a roadmap into the complex world ofanimal ethics. The book's strength lies in Garner's ability topresent and position a variety of philosophical perspectives in asuccinct and cogent manner. I greatly applaud this effort onGarner's part and encourage the uninitiated reader to delve intothe philosophical complexities with the help of Garner's guidinghand."
"Garner succeeds in presenting a clearly written and eminentlyreadable account of present thinking on the moral status ofanimals."
Times Literary Supplement

The book is serious, concise and clearly-written, andGarner sets out the arguments fairly, even where it is plain thathe disagrees."
