Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Her style is clear and matter-of-fact, and it is easy to find one's way in her book. Teichmas has also an interesting approach to ethics and I have experienced the study of her book as rewarding. So her book can certainly be recommended." Finngeir Hiorth

"It is very well-written, and stimulating on professional ethics and animals; still more so on euthanasia ... It is an enjoyable book. I think it will be eagerly read by students." Professor G E M Anscombe, University of Cambridge
