Format: Hardcover
Preece and Chamberlain show uncommon sanity, assessing the merits of furiously clashing arguments. They expose the oversimplifications of animal rights fanatics and the self-serving deceptions of corporate spokesmen. They wade through the culture wars over experiments on animals, hunting, trapping, industrialized farming, the use of animals for entertainment, and the issues surrounding companion animals. Through it all they remain calm, critical, and compassionate, with an impressive command of legal, economic, and ecological developments. They discuss the moral and philosophical issues with reference to the whole history of Western thought, and it gets intellectually demanding. Where most debate concerns the individual rights of individual beasts, these authors focus more on the rights and needs of multi-species communities. Can they come up with simple universal rules for relating to all species of beings? That, Preece and Chamberlain argue, would be too much to impose on life: "We can ask no more than for a kind, considerate, protective and respectful speciesism."
