By organizing the literary pieces according to the means by which human beings relate to the animals discussed as companions, as sources of food, as objects of sport and entertainment, and as subjects in scientific research preeminent scholars Tom Regan and Andrew Linzey enable readers to relate these texts (and these animals) to their own experiences and to the manifold issues now discussed in public forums. While the editors believe the time is ripe for radical change in the way human beings see and treat animals, this collection nonetheless presents various and contrary viewpoints, leaving readers to come to their own moral conclusions.
