In the United States roughly 2 million people are incarcerated; billions of animals are held captive (and then killed) in the food industry every year; hundreds of thousands of animals are kept in laboratories; thousands are in zoos and aquaria; millions of "pets" are captive in our homes. Surprisingly, despite the rich ethical questions it raises, very little philosophical attention has been paid to questions raised by captivity. Though conditions of captivity vary widely for humans and for other animals, there are common ethical themes that imprisonment raises, including the value of liberty, the nature of autonomy, the meaning of dignity, and the impact of routine confinement on physical and psychological well-being. This volume brings together scholars, scientists, and sanctuary workers to address in fifteen new essays the ethical issues captivity raises. Section One contains chapters written by those with expert knowledge about particular conditions of captivity and includes discussion of how captivity is experienced by dogs, whales and dolphins, elephants, chimpanzees, rabbits, formerly farmed animals, and human prisoners. Section Two contains chapters by philosophers and social theorists that reflect on the social, political, and ethical issues raised by captivity, including discussions about confinement, domestication, captive breeding for conservation, the work of moral repair, dignity and an ethics of sight, and the role that coercion plays.

Of all the issues related to animal ethics discussed in this handbook, perhaps the most visible is captivity. This chapter begins with an overarching critique of captivity in Lori Gruen’s Incarceration, Liberty and Dignity. It proceeds to a fundamental challenge to the ethical defensibility of zoos in Liz Tyson’s Speciesism and Zoos. The final set of essays detail the harm produced by the captivity of nonhuman animals who are known to be intellectually, emotionally and socially sophisticated

This book is a remarkable accomplishment. Lori Gruen consistently takes the time to think about issues that most people would prefer not to think about. In this collection, a variety of philosophers take on the complex issue of captivity in both humans and animals. The essay from human prisoners currently incarcerated is one of the standouts. Other fantastic essays include Gruen's own piece on dignity and an ethics of sight, as well as pieces on dog captivity and the ethics of controlling the cat population.

In short, this collection is incredible and is essential reading for anyone at all concerned with ethics. Really though, by giving these prisoners and activists a voice, Gruen is doing an important service for us all. Buy this book!

Wonderful. Comprehensive. Thought-provoking.
This is a book that will only become more important. The book is an interdisciplinary meditation on the ethical ramifications of keeping animals (both human and non-human animals) in cages. The sheer mass of animals currently in cages is staggering and speaks to the dire need of literature on the subject.
Someone must speak for those who cannot speak for themselves. Lori Gruen not only speaks but shouts.

I was really disapointed with this book. I had to read it for my Enviornmental Ethics class which I loved but this book only gives examples of America's captivity, instead of talking about this topic in a more international perspective.

I'd been eagerly anticipating the release of this book, and it doesn't disappoint. I'm always curious to know what ecofeminist philosopher Lori Gruen is thinking about, and you should be too. Here she has gathered scholars and activists from truly varied vantage points and invied them to think closely about captivity from their standpoints. Contributors include not only adept academicians but also a former political prisoner as well as activists who work to abolish prisons or liberate animals. One contributor writes from an animal sanctuary while others write from the prison in which they are currently incarcerated. All have something unique to say that we, who are living in an age of unprecedented lock-down, need to read and heed.
