Do animals have rights? If not, do we have duties towards them? If so, what duties? These and a myriad of other issues are discussed in the brilliantly argued Animal Rights and Wrongs. Issues discussed include:....- Why are animal-rights groups so keen to protect the rights of rabbits and foxes but not of rats or mice or even humans?..- How can we bridge the growing gap between rural producers and urban consumers?..-Why is raising animals for fur more heinous than raising them for their meat?..-Are we as human beings driving other species either to extinction or to a state of dependency?....Animal Rights and Wrongs includes chapters on the livestock crisis, fishing, BSE and a layman's introduction to philosophical concepts. The book presents a radical response to the defenders of animal rights, and a challenge to those who think that because they are kind to their pets, they are therefore good news for animals.
