‘The No-Nonsense Guide to Animal Rights traces the origins of the movement, explains the ways in which animals are used and abused, and ultimately shows why animal liberation is human liberation.’ - Ingrid E Newkirk, founder of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA).

Today animals need protecting more than ever. Some are bred for laboratories, for zoos or hunting. Others are reared intensively on farms. And those out in the wild are losing their habitats to logging and oil exploration.

This No-Nonsense Guide explains the key issues, charts the growth of the animal rights movement and looks at the welfare and protection laws. It also includes a practical day-to-day guide to what you can do to minimise exploitation.

About the Author: Catharine Grant is a writer, historian and activist based in Toronto. She has recently completed her doctoral dissertation on political rhetoric. She is also involved in various campaigns for animal rights and social and environmental justice.
