Animal Liberation

The Definitive Classic of the Animal Movement

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

The groundbreaking and “important” book about animal rights by the author of Ethics in the Real World—including a new preface (Chicago Tribune).

First published in 1975, Animal Liberation created a sensation upon its release, shaking the world’s philosophical and animal-protection circles to their cores. Now, forty years later, Peter Singer’s landmark work still looms large as a foundational and canonical text of animal advocacy. Arguing that all beings capable of suffering deserve equal consideration, Singer contends that the only justifiable treatment of animals is that which maximizes good and minimizes suffering. In examining the cruelty of factory farming and the exploitation, both commercial and scientific, of laboratory animals, he identifies a kind of “ethical blindness” and calls for political action.
 
A moral wake-up call from one of the most influential and controversial ethicists of our time, Animal Liberation tackles an emotionally charged social issue with a compelling rational argument in a rousing and riveting read.
 
This ebook features an illustrated biography of Peter Singer, including rare photos from the author’s personal collection.

Customer Reviews

Changed my life

I read this book first in 1979 and it opened up a whole new world for me. I was isolated and heartened to find that someone else thought the way I did. Peter Singer's thorough exploration of the topic exposed me to many other pervasive ways non-human animals are abused and commodified that had never occurred to me. It's must read book.
