Description
Information
Do animals have rights? If not, do we have duties towards them? If so, what duties?

These and a myriad of other issues are discussed in the brilliantly argued 'Animal Rights And Wrongs'. Issues discussed include:
Why are animal-rights groups so keen to protect the rights of badgers and foxes but not of rats or mice or even humans?
How can we bridge the growing gap between rural producers and urban consumers?
Why is raising animals for fur more heinous than raising them for their meat?
Are we as human beings driving other species either to extinction or to a state of dependency?

'Animal Rights And Wrongs' includes chapters on the livestock crisis, fishing, BSE and a layman's introduction to philosophical concepts. The book presents a radical response to the defenders of animal rights, and a challenge to those who think that because they are kind to their pets, they are therefore good news for animals.
