Animal Rights

by Edward F. Dolan Jr.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 7-12 In this thorough, timely overview of the issues surrounding the animal rights movement, Dolan presents a strong case for more humane treatment of living creatures. An initial chapter deals with the historical development of the animal rights philosophy and outlines these rights as seen by animal advocates. Subsequent chapters explore the current treatment of animals in scientific laboratories, agriculture, sports, and entertainment. Current laws in each of these areas are discussed as well as legislation proposed by animal rights advocates. A final section lists the names and addresses of 25 national organizations active in the animal rights movement. Animal Rights (Four Winds, 1980) by Patricia Curtis presents eyewitness accounts of animal advocates, but does not include information on current legislation and recent events in as much depth as Dolan's book. These two titles complement each other to provide an excellent source for student research on this controversial topic. Barbara B. Murphy, Shaler Area School District Libraries, Pittsburgh
