Animal Rights

  • Beastly Moralityby Jonathan K. Crane

    Columbia University Press 2015; US$ 34.99

    We have come to regard nonhuman animals as beings of concern, and we even grant them some legal protections.

Featuring original essays by philosophers, ethicists, religionists, and ethologists, including Marc Bekoff,... more...

    Columbia University Press 2015; US$ 29.99

Dayan reorients our ethical... more...

  • Creatures Like Us?by Lynne Sharpe

    Andrews UK 2015; US$ 20.49

    As a child brought up among animals, Lynne Sharpe never doubted they were essentially 'creatures like us'. It came as a shock to learn that others did not agree.
