Cass Sunstein and Martha Nussbaum bring together an all-star cast of contributors to explore the legal and political issues that underlie the campaign for animal rights and the opposition to it. Ethical questions on ownership, protection against suffering and the ability of animals to make their own choices free from human control are thought-provokingly examined. The contributors approach the question of animal rights and welfare from diverse perspectives, engaging the reader and each other in lively debate. Stimulating, and scholarly, this is the first anthology to bring current theory in touch with the latest scientific evidence and concrete issues of social policy and practice.
