It's been more than two decades since the first edition of this landmark book garnered public accolades for its sensitive yet honest and forthright approach to the many disquieting questions surrounding the emotional debate over animal rights. Is moral concern something owed by human beings only to human beings? Drawing upon his philosophical expertise, his extensive experience of working with animal issues all over the world, and his knowledge of biological science, Bernard E Rollin - now widely recognised as the father of veterinary ethics - develops a compelling analysis of animal rights as it is emerging in society.The result is a sound basis for rational discussion and social policy development in this area of rapidly growing concern. He believes that society must elevate the moral status of animals and protect their rights as determined by their natures. His public speaking and published works have contributed to passage of major federal legislation designed to increase the well-being of laboratory animals. This new Third Edition is greatly expanded and includes a new chapter on animal agriculture, plus additional discussions of animal law, companion animal issues, genetic engineering, animal pain, animal research, and many other topics.

Animal Rights and Human Morality is as relevant and important today as it was when first published.

Animal Rights and Human Morality is as relevant and important today as it was when first published. And just as necessary, for despite all we know about the minds and especially the feelings of animals, routine abuse of animals continues. Peppered with countless stories of his encounters with tough stockmen and steely laboratory workers, Rollin’s voice is an important one in the struggle for animal rights. Rollin's book is an invaluable aid to the animal rights or animal welfare advocate because he approaches the issues with the dispassionate rationality that scientists drape around their attitudes, seizing the "intellectual high ground" from teary-eyed bunny huggers.

Rollin specializes in animal rights and the philosophy of consciousness, and is the author of a number of influential books in the field, including Animal Rights and Human Morality (1981), The Unheeded Cry: Animal Consciousness, Animal Pain and Scientific Change (1988), Farm Animal Welfare (1995), and Science and Ethics (2006).

Talk about Animal rights and human morality


Nothing personal
Rollin's book is an invaluable aid to the animal rights or animal welfare advocate because he approaches the issues with the dispassionate rationality that scientists drape around their attitudes, seizing the "intellectual high ground" from teary-eyed bunny huggers. Rollin is no bunny hugger, and his critique of the inconsistencies and contradictions in the utilitarian and behaviorist views of our relationship with the other animals is crisp, logical, and devastating.

As he makes clear, loathing for the inhumane may make us feel good, but it doesn't go far in changing things. The book is dry going, as Rollin moves from John Rawls to Jeremy Bentham, with a substantial portion of the text devoted to specific failings of the Animal Welfare Act and a detailed examination of the principles of animal testing. Like a visit to the dentist or an afternoon with the vacuum, it's not necessarily much fun. You won't find a lot of heartwarming stories about sensitive elephants here -- not that those are bad things.

What you will find is a legislative agenda, an outline for community action, and an arsenal of reasoned arguments to counter the exploiters of animals. It would be nice to think that we can turn the food industry technicians and scientific researchers with a question as simple as, "Would you do it to your dog?" For many of them, that may be enough. It's the rest for whom Rollin offers us strategies. Social ethics are murky, in that we may "know" what's right, but we can't explain what we know or how to those that don't get it. Read Rollin, and the explanations will be clear.

I felt it necessary to comment on the incredibly poor quality of this edition of this book, and my review has nothing to do with the content of the book itself. It's just that this edition is so cheaply and badly bound - barely glued together - that the first copy I got fell apart within the first 24 hours of receiving the book. Amazon kindly agreed to send me a replacement copy, in case it was just my copy that was problematic. I have just received and opened the new copy and the pages have once again come loose from the binding - the result of simply opening the book in a normal fashion. Obviously it is not easy to read a nearly 400 page book when the pages are all loose, and to charge over $20 for such a book is just wrong. Until you have confirmed that this faulty batch of very badly made books is no longer in circulation I suggest you don't buy the book - a big waste of money because you will not be able to read it!

Got it as a gift for my sister, she said it was a very good read.

The author is a narcissist and rambles about everything. He makes very little sense at times and tries to use fancy words to sound smarter. It just makes reading the book way more complicated than it should be. Also the majority of his book could be summarized. I found that it took 10 pages to say what could be said in 2 or 3.

I almost didn't buy this book because I was put off by it's cover. It just looked outdated.
But I own just about everything written about animal rights so I picked it up to add to my library.
It has turned out to be one of my favorite books because it's beautifully written with excellent logic.
If you have ever had difficulty explaining your position on an animal rights issue, to a non-animal person, read this book.
And then read it again.
A perfect blend of logic, ethics and moral behavior.
I purchased B.Rollin's book to help me write an animal rights paper for my Business Law class. I found myself totally engrossed in the book. It was wonderfully written, and had so much information that writing my paper was a breeze. But I recommend this book for anyone who is an animal lover and disagrees with product testing on animals. It will definately open your eyes.
