Twenty years ago, people thought only cranks or sentimentalists could be seriously concerned about the treatment of non-human animals. However, since then philosophers, scientists and welfarists have raised public awareness of the issue; and they have begun to lay the foundations for an enormous change in human practice. This book is a record of the development of 'animal rights' through the eyes of one highly-respected and well-known thinker.
This book brings together for the first time Stephen R.L. Clark's major essays in one volume. Written with characteristic clarity and persuasion, Animals and Their Moral Standing will be essential reading for both philosophers and scientists, as well as the general reader concerned by the debates over animal rights and treatment.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Alongside Mary Midgley, Stephen Clark is our best writer on animals and our proper relationship to them. He writes with enormous erudition, intelligence and controlled passion."
-David E. Cooper, University of Durham
"Anything Stephen Clark writes is gilt-edged, highly credible, invariably highly original and always insightful. He is a wonderful prose stylist."
-Bernard Rollin, Colorado State University
"Stephen Clarke's writings on our relation to non-humans are always original and important. The collection will be welcomed by all those philosophers and others interested in this area."
-Roger Crisp, St Anne's College, Oxford
." . .stimulating, original, insightful -- a contribution as much to our understanding of ourselves as it is to our understanding of how we should think about animals and how we should treat them."
-Cora Diamond, University of Virginia
"A stimulating collection of his essays from 1978 to 1994, Clark offers a sterling defense of animal rights."
-Martin Rowe, "Boston Book Review
