Revue de presse :

"Eloquent essays."--The Atlantic Monthly

"...a wide range of thought-provoking responses....an accessible survey of the major ideas in this intellectually challenging debate."--The Federal Lawyer

"Our society is in the midst of a major debate over animal rights, our duties, and the legal status of animals. This new compilation of essays has profoundly contributed to this debate.... Animal Rights is an incredible resource introducing readers to the basic issues in animal rights and highlighting directions animal advocates may go..."--Animal Law

"This collection of essays provides a fine introduction to a number of difficult and controversial questions. It is particularly strong in its treatment of the philosophical and legal issues that surround animal rights."--Science

"These 14 skillfully edited, high quality, and nicely balanced essays present a wide range of legal, political, and ethical perspectives on animal rights, and include some well-arranged sequences of competing arguments.... Recommended."--Choice

"An important and thought-provoking work. Sunstein and Nussbaum illuminate issues that have the power to unite or divide those of us who care deeply about animals. By fostering better understanding, their book can help light the pathway to common ground."--Kathryn S. Fuller, President, World Wildlife Fund-US

"Happily, the emerging field of animal rights has reached a point mature enough to call for a wide-angle overview of its many facets, with carefully chosen contributions from its founders and most accomplished activists to the writings of its most thought-provoking philosophers. This superbly conceived collection of essays not only meets that need but explores the deepest connections between the protection of non-human species and the frontiers of human rights. Edited with grace by Cass Sunstein and Martha Nussbaum, two leading scholars who contribute their own brilliant chapters to this seminal volume, this is a veritable hitchhiker's guide to the galaxy of animal rights and animal welfare. Anyone genuinely concerned about the creatures who are our kin will have to read this book from cover to cover."--Laurence H. Tribe, Tyler Professor of Constitutional Law, Harvard Law School

"An impressive collection: essential reading for anyone interested in the debates over animal rights, and indeed for anyone who cares about how humans treat animals."--George Pitcher, Professor of Philosophy, Emeritus, Princeton University

"Edited by a distinguished legal scholar and one of the most important philosophers of our day, this volume offers a remarkably fresh collection of essays exploring our relationship--moral, legal, social, and epistemological--to nonhuman animals. A creative tension emerges from the exchange of competing and often ingenious arguments. Readers will profit from a wealth of empirical data about animals' capacities and existing practices and institutions of animal use. The book is perhaps most distinctive in its examination of animals in relation to the law, several authors providing concrete suggestions for legal reform. Animal Rights: Current Debates and New Directions is an excellent choice for law school and applied ethics courses." --David DeGrazia, author of Taking Animals Seriously

Présentation de l'éditeur :

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. Addressing ethical questions about ownership, protection against unjustified suffering, and the ability of animals to make their own choices free from human control, the authors offer numerous different perspectives on animal rights and animal welfare. They show that whatever one's ultimate conclusions, the relationship between human beings and nonhuman animals is being fundamentally rethought. This book offers a state-of-the-art treatment of that rethinking.
