Note In this introduction to animal ethics, the author weaves together case studies with discussions of ethical theory, urging readers to engage critically and empathetically reflect on our treatment of other animals. She provides a survey of the issues central to human-animal relations and a reasoned new perspective on current key debates in the field. She analyses and explains a range of theoretical positions and poses challenging questions that directly encourage readers to hone their ethical reasoning skills and to develop a defensible position about their own practices. Her book is meant to be a resource for students in a wide range of disciplines including ethics, environmental studies, veterinary science, women's studies, and the emerging field of animal studies. -- Provided by publisher
