Raising awareness of human indifference and cruelty toward animals, The Global Guide to Animal Protection includes more than 180 introductory articles that survey the extent of worldwide human exploitation of animals from a variety of perspectives. In addition to entries on often disturbing examples of human cruelty toward animals, the book provides inspiring accounts of attempts by courageous individuals - including Jane Goodall, Shirley McGreal, Birute Mary Galdikas, Richard D. Ryder, and Roger Fouts - to challenge and change exploitative practices. As concern for animals and their welfare grows, this volume will be an indispensable aid to general readers, activists, scholars, and students interested in developing a keener awareness of cruelty to animals and considering avenues for reform. Also included is a special foreword by Archbishop Desmond Tutu, urging readers to seek justice and protection for all creatures, humans and animals alike. Andrew Linzey is a member of the Faculty of Theology at the University of Oxford and director of the Oxford Centre for Animal Ethics. Coeditor of the Journal of Animal Ethics, he has written or edited more than twenty books, including Animal Theology, Animals on the Agenda: Questions about Animals for Theology and Ethics, and Why Animal Suffering Matters: Philosophy, Theology, and Practical Ethics.
