About this book

From vegetarianism to scientific experimentation, this book is an ethical exploration of our responsibilities to the animals with whom we share the planet. The author goes beyond standard discussions of animal ethics to explore the ways in which we personally relate to other creatures through our diet, as pet owners and as beneficiaries of experimentation. The book connects with our duty to act and considers why previous discussions have failed to result in a change in the way that we live our lives.

Introduction; 1. The Depth of Meat Eating; 2. An Unspoken Contract?; 3. Vegetarianism and Puritanism; 4. Diet and Sustainability; 5. The Impossible Scenario; 6. Love for Pets; 7. Experimentation in Context; Further Reading; Index.

Media reviews
Beyond Animal Rights is a fine book: a wide-ranging and sensitive discussion of the ethical considerations which apply when humans deal with animals. The author makes powerful use of statistics, but is not afraid to appeal to our moral intuitions." - Elizabeth Telfer, Honorary Research Fellow, Department of Philosophy, University of Glasgow, UK , "Beyond Animal Rights is a very important book. In his thoughtful discussion of how we interact with other animals including who we choose to eat - not what we choose to eat - Tony Milligan considers a wide variety of arguments used to justify meat-eating, for the most part an unnecessary habit that brings untold suffering to millions of innocent animals. Whether one agrees or disagrees with Dr. Milligan, this well-argued book will force readers to think more about the sentient creatures who they pop into their mouths at the end of a fork." - Marc Bekoff, University of Colorado, USA; author of The Emotional Lives of Animals, Wild Justice: The Moral Lives of Animals, and The Animal Manifesto: Six Reasons for Expanding Our Compassion Footprint
