Equal Rights for Animals

Equal Rights for Animals

by Rosalind Kerven

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 5 Up-- There are many new, thought-provoking ideas in these books. Although both are quite British in their orientation, their overall goals are international and each is so up-to-date that libraries will find them useful. Patterns of Work looks at the effects of new technology on workers and their lifestyles. Job-sharing, flextime, and a variety of technologies are discussed. Equal Rights for Animals reviews not only the usual fur-hunting and trapping degradations that are the basis of many such books, but also the relationship between humans and animals. Questions regarding the rights of some species such as mollusks and insects are also discussed. Positive suggestions and examples abound (again, mostly with a European perspective), and children are asked to question institutions such as circuses and porpoise shows. Both volumes are illustrated with many full-color photographs. The typeface is a little small, and the indexes are not comprehensive; however, the books are so interesting and exhaustive that they would make valuable additions to most collections. --Eva Elisabeth Von Ancken, Trinity Pawling School, NY
