Overview

From a beloved household pet to a laboratory mouse, animals have many roles in contemporary society. Increasingly, people are examining the ways in which animals are treated, causing many to ask fundamental questions about the rights of animals. The subject of animal rights means different things to different people. For some, it merely represents an attempt to improve the conditions of animals used for clothing, food, and other products. For others, animal rights means granting the same legal rights to animals that are afforded humans. In this thoroughly revised edition of Animal Rights, author Lisa Yount explores the issues of animal experimentation, conditions on factory farms, laboratory animals, animals in entertainment, hunting, and the actions of those involved in the animal rights debate. Documents such as the Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act and contemporary court cases such as Animal Legal Defense Fund v. Glickman are included. These documents provide both past and present perspectives surrounding the issue and plot a course for future debate about animal rights.

Editorial Reviews

VOYA
Considered by Rutgers law professor and animal-rights activist Gary Francione to be the civil rights movement of the twenty-first century, the treatment of animals has had significant impact on society and law. Part of the Library in a Book series, this volume is a comprehensive reference work about the topic. It is designed to be a one-stop source for most of the information needed to research animal rights. There is an overview of both animal welfare and rights featuring discussions on animals as companions in zoos and in the wild, the animal rights movement and its tactics, and many more issues. A section on animals and the law reviews major court cases relating to animal rights, as well as acts such as the Animal Welfare Act and the Endangered Species Act. A chronology presents the important events that have affected laws and attitudes on the topic. Short biographies are given for major participants in developing legislation and crusading for animal welfare and rights. Students will find the exhaustive glossary very useful. A portion of the book is given to helping students do further research on animal rights. Suggestions are given for other sources of information, other research materials, and pertinent organizations and agencies, making this book invaluable for reports on a popular current topic. 2004, Facts on File, 298p.; Glossary. Index. Biblio. Further Reading. Chronology. Appendix., PLB $45.. Ages 11 to Adult.
