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.
