Animal Liberation

The Definitive Classic of the Animal Movement

Peter Singer

368 pages revised Manuscript in English Philosophy

For the first time in 30 years, the groundbreaking work that inspired a worldwide movement to transform our attitudes towards animals will be fully revised.

During the late ‘70s and ‘80s, Animal Liberation became known as “the bible” of the emerging and rapidly growing animal rights movement. Now, Singer is bringing up to date his expose of the chilling realities of “factory farms” and product-testing procedures to reflect a profound environmental, social, and moral issue as they are today. Addressing changing laws in Europe, the UK, the US, and the efforts of major companies like McDonald’s raising their animal welfare standards in various ways, Singer looks to show that, despite the greater prominence of the animal movement and of plant-based eating, animals continue to be mistreated, in laboratories and farms, on a scale that is even larger than when the book was first published in 1975.
