This book makes a close examination on the subjects of how we treat animals, a burgeoning issue in applied ethics. International in scope and multidisciplinary in approach, the contributors encompass topics as diverse as killing for food, animals in farming, animal experimentation, religious slaughter, animal companions, zoos, aquariums, genetic manipulation, hunting for sport, horse racing, and bullfighting. This research addresses cutting edge issues, with all 28 contributions written by leading experts, including Lisa Johnson on the themes of human dominance, Thomas White on the ethics of captivity, Mark Bernstein on the ethics of killing and Kay Peggs on the causation of suffering. Academics will find this book an authoritative work of reference, and an essential text for researching the field of modern animal ethics.
