Pages toned. 1977 Mass Market Paperback. xix, 297 pp. Several pages of photographs. Since its original publication in 1975, this groundbreaking work has awakened millions of concerned men and women to the shocking abuse of animals everywhere -- inspiring a worldwide movement to eliminate much of the cruel and unnecessary laboratory animal experimentation of years past. In this newly revised and expanded edition, author Peter Singer exposes the chilling realities of today's factory forms and product-testing procedures -- offering sound, humane solutions to what has become a profound environmental and social as well as moral issue. An important and persuasive appeal to conscience, fairness, decency and justice, Animal Liberation is essential reading for the supporter and the skeptic alike. Peter A.

He studied internal medicine at the University of Toronto, medical ethics at the University of Chicago, public health at Yale University, and management at Harvard Business School. He has published over 280 articles in journals including Science, Nature Genetics, Nature Biotechnology, PLoS Medicine, International Affairs, BMJ, Lancet, New England Journal of Medicine, JAMA, and others. He has held $50 million in research grants, including three large grants from Genome Canada. He has trained over 50 graduate students and fellows, many of whom have leadership positions in bioethics around the world. He has written over 30 op-ed articles for national newspapers. He is a member of the Scientific Advisory Board of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation Grand Challenges for Global Health Initiative and the Committee on Advances in Technology and the Prevention of Their Application to Next Generation Biowarfare Agents of the United States National Academy of Sciences.
