About this book

A new edition with updates on the animal rights movement and the living conditions of farm and laboratory animals. Rightly known as the seminal work in the field.

"An extraordinary book which has had extraordinary effects. It galvanised a generation into action. Groups sprang up around the world, equipped with a new vocabulary, a new set of ethics and a new sense of mission [...] Singer's book is widely known as the bible of the animal liberation movement."
- Independent on Sunday

"A reasoned plea for the humane treatment of animals that galvanised the animal-rights movement the way the Rachel Carson's Silent Spring drew activists to environmentalism."
- New York Times

"Important and responsible [...] Everyone ought to read it."
- Richard Adams
