The Animal Ethics Reader
Susan Jean Armstrong, Richard George Botzler
Routledge, 2008 - Nature - 646 pages
The second edition of The Animal Ethics Reader is the most current and comprehensive anthology of readings on the subject of animal ethics. Whilst keeping the best of the previous edition, the editors have updated readings to reflect ongoing developments and emerging issues like rehabilitation of oiled wildlife, human elephant interactions, and animal consciousness and emotion.
Classic and contemporary readings are arranged thematically, carefully presenting a balanced representation of the field as it stands, and include selections from leading experts in the field. Each chapter is introduced by the editors and study questions feature at the end.
The second edition also contains a new foreword by Bernard Rollin.
