Animal Rights: A Very Short Introduction, Paperback

Animal Rights: A Very Short Introduction Paperback

Part of the Very Short Introductions series



Do animals have moral rights? If so, what does this mean? What sorts of mental lives do animals have, and how should we understand welfare?

By presenting models for understanding animals' moral status and rights, and examining their mental lives and welfare, David DeGrazia explores the implications for how we should treat animals in connection with our diet, zoos, and research.

Animal Rights distinguishes itself by combining intellectual rigour with accessibility, offering a distinct moral voice with a non-polemical tone.
